It’s Time

I’m occupying

my own little corner of the world,

doing my job,

trying to make a small difference,

while trying not to take up too much space,

on this crowded planet,

but I can’t keep my head down,

when humans continue

to play God,

deciding who is expendable,

acting out of fear and anger,

because no matter who we are,

or how small a space we occupy,

one by one we need to stop talking,

and start showing through our actions,

that we care.

  1. Yes! Yes! and Yes!
    Two nights ago, someone set fire to a Romanian food shop in Norwich. Many people suspect it’s post-Brexit result xenophobia. In just a few hours, £25K was raised to help the owner and her family. The town rallied in support. This morning, a crowd gathered outside the shop and pinned paper hearts with messages of solidarity and support to the plywood board that stands in lieu of smashed glass front. I pinned one too. It felt like such a small, insignificant gesture – but better than doing nothing.
