Motivational Monday Poem: Oppressor’s Mist

Standing in a crowd

My voice loud and strong

Yet ignored and silenced

Sound waves evaporating

In a polluted air of false leadership



“Danger!” I call

While the oppressor’s mist

Clouds the senses

And tunnels my pleas


Tattered spirits weakened

By hate, fear, and pain

Spread misery cloaked in promise

Their words as weapons

Shielding the fragility within


We must unite in love to confront our truths – past and present

Or face an unrecognizable future.
