Week 49; A Poem a Day

12/4/16

I used to believe
In the power of powers

Then it came to me
As it comes to you
That revolution
Is a game of tiny shifts
Inspired by courageous acts

Most players will never look upon
The victory
They’d most longed for
Which doesn’t seem fair

It’s not a level playing field
It isn’t fair

But we give what we can
To nudge the movement
Another degree
While our heroes
Give what they cannot
And so they steer the course
Of history

We celebrate each small win
Because
The game never ends

You see
We reside on the promised land
But we have yet to fulfill
The promise of life
