It’s tempting to just give in,

Let the violence, hate and greed win.

Because why take in one refugee

When thousands are stranded at sea?

Or protest racial discrimination

When it infects the police of this nation?

Why recycle your bottle of lotion 

When we can’t stop the rise of the ocean? 

So yeah, throw hissy fits and cry

But keep your eyes lifted high. 

Maybe we won’t get it ‘right’

But ‘better’ is worth a fight. 

If perfection’s required today,

Without space for reaction’s delay, 

Then martyrs will sit in their sorrow 

Neglecting an improved tomorrow.
