actions, not words

June 5, 2020

i never believed in being a "voice for the voiceless"
because it's better to shut up and listen
and only speak in actions, not in words

i want to serve and obey
the ones who lead the way 
the ones who are risking their lives
for our rights 

instead of speaking over them
i want to make myself useful 
even in times where i feel hopeless
and offer them my unconditional support

I was a bit reluctant to respond to this prompt as I've always believed in the "actions, not words" approach to activism. But then I realized that's a pretty good idea to express in verse. I believe we should give our complete uncritical, unflinching support to BLM. 

A great resource to support BLM with actions, not words:

I also found this article on the subject by Obama to be really interesting, so I'm linking it here:

    despite the fact that I know this is a safe place, you're right, it's real scary to put that out there sometimes.
