Justice.
Justice.
A word so easily twisted
In a world so easily destroyed
What does man know about
Justice?

Be The Change

PROMPT: The Intersection

Black lives DO matter, it's true.

But ALL lives should matter to us no matter age, color, race, creed, or profession. 

We are all humans, created by God.

We are His beloved children.

God has called us to love each other just like He has loved us.

No one should ever be treated with destain because of how they look or where they come from. 

Fighting was never the answer. 

Our blood flows the same color of red when we...

SEED

PROMPT: The Intersection

It was dark inside.  I was scared  As my family and friends were not around. I was good inside. Inside my mommy’s cozy womb. I want light, heat and water, So that I could grow faster.  And meet my mommy and daddy. My heart is melting as It’s been days or maybe weeks Spent in complete loneliness. Would you help me meet them? Oh sorry! It’s ‘The Humans’ I was seeking. Hey! Any animal out there?   I was good inside. ...

One World, One People

PROMPT: The Intersection

Green and blue,
Black and white.
No me without you,
No warmth without light.

A world full of life,
Humans, worthy, one and all,
Don't cause more strife,
Keep the world without flaw.

One World

PROMPT: The Intersection

I am only one person
               one speck
               one dot

in the world
          history of time
          grand scheme of the universe

and I may not know a lot about racial justice
                                               climate change
                                               social classes

but I know this
        am sure of this
        have confidence in this

our planet can't heal
                 can't recover
                 can't move on

until we are united as one
             see each other as human

Climate Justice: A Few Words

PROMPT: The Intersection

The world is a big place
Full of many different faces and people. 

What's not cool 
is how many die 
from pollution 
in their area. 

Not many are yelling, shouting about this, 
but it's equally important. 
The world isn't pure bliss, 
where it gets injured and only needs 
A kiss
on the knee to feel better. 

For me, 
we need to speak about this. 
Have overdue dialogue.
Because this doesn't just pertain to me, 
it pertains to you too. 

What...

The only world - the only people

PROMPT: The Intersection

In my motherland, as a matter of fact, we don't have that many people of color or people from another culture, country or anything that differs from us. Frankly speaking, it happens quite rarely when a foreign person comes to Chornobai (my native town) in order to explore something or due to the job proposal or for any other reason. That's why I guess, the climate issues have to do with our Ukrainian people only. However, it's only about towns,...

Message for the Canadian Government

PROMPT: The Intersection

Content Warning: Mentions racism and environmental destruction
 
Mercury poisons the precious streams,
And each breath they take here sets their lungs on fire,
How can their children dream?
Would you steal their future for your selfish desire?
 
You prey on their joy, their love, their hope for the future,
But someday your children will need the very same water they protect,
You have the arrogance to see your way of life as better,
Without giving them an ounce...

Non-reflective

PROMPT: The Intersection

brown skin: collects more heat
with a plan to give it off again,
sweat-slick in slums

commuting, booting their way through
coal dust and black air
rooting into concrete like an affair;

rolling in droves into the cities,
in the shadows of skyscrapers,
where reside the dry, white, elite;

working for two dollars a day,
and a bonus of one explosive tragedy
per year in Bangladesh;

callused finger spin cotton
and acrylic into denim
dyed with indigo and blood;
