Solitary Strength by Sheritha Singh
Picture this world from outer space,
A mix of genders and every race.
Some are wonderful and happy,
Others are sour and snappy.
We hurt each other with words,
Weapons and rigid outspoken thoughts.
We hurt each other because we want to be better,
And over time these feelings fester.
It’s a terrible cycle of vicious hate,
As we continue to slate
And hate and burn bridges with anger.
Isn’t it time we shut our eyes
And erased the lies?
Isn’t it time we embraced our differences?
Wouldn’t it be good if we chose love over negligence?
I choose to find my solitary strength
Because not even the president has friends.
Change begins with one.
I’m not afraid to stand alone.
My solitary strength is my guiding light
Through mny journey of life.
