For Orlando and for Me

Hate plus assault weapons
plus bitter blame
and whatever else
went into the poison brew
which boiled over.
Forty nine life lights

It must stop.
It must start with me
ferreting out hate
in myself,
standing against intolerance
and judgment.

So little I can do,
so important to do it.
It is time for illuminating
the dark -
hold firm,
stand kind.

I am alone.
I hope you are with me.
This must stop.

In honor of lives lost in Orlando and lives forever changed.
