Can You?

Can you believe the promise
of a new day when those before
prove to be less than expected,
and not what was anticipated?
Is your breath deep with words
of hope, your mind ever open
to accepting the courage offered,
and your back able to support
the weight of the world? Will you
continue trying to silence beliefs
that harm, and ideals that kill?
Can you find the charity required
to share your soul with strangers?
