Please

Please,
Hear us. 
Please,
Respond instead 
Of react. 
Please, 
Let’s all try
To stop
Only feeling 
Attacked. 

Please, 
Let’s try to understand 
And make things right. 
We need solutions
And good will; 
Not a fight.  

Please
Care. 
Please
Acknowledge. 
Please
Hear.
Please,  
Here,
Right now,
We can do 
Something. 

Please, 
We need to do
Something. 
Please, 
We have to do
Something.
