Rising

Revolution comes
in the silence
of the songwriters
and the slant
of the poets
Revolution comes
in the quiet conversation
and unity

We become change
when we change ourselves
the base status quo
within our powerful grasp

Revolution will come
through the lens of a camera
the gaze
of the masses
As they paint a new canvas
gesso over the ugliness

Starting anew
elevated
