Never Keep Your Ambition to do Great Things in Check

Whatever your aspiration, be ambitious every day – for yourself, for your family, for the entire human community.

How am I able to live what I aspire for myself in ways that benefit others’ equality, fairness, autonomy and justice? How am I able to use my privilege?




gasping for

air, bobbing in

the sea of racist

hate, shallow, tense egos

with guns no lifeline.

No forgiveness; unrelenting

sadness of white privilege an anchor

to the soul’s cry for wholeness. When does the

shame of racist murder outweigh the curse

of perpetual allowing? True

humanity, colorless, sees

itself in its reflection,

awaiting, with only

love, resolution.

Deeply tired.

Tear-filled voice.
