A poem a day for 2013 - day 202 - Allegiance

This is the journey I travel
Framed by my love for humankind
For my belief in freedom
In justice
I call loudly for the safety of children
I cry in great despair when fear becomes hate and hate murder
I celebrate the simple courage in all of us for living every day
For showing up as word
As honor
As friend
I believe in band aids for our falls
I believe in falling
In learning
In forgetting
In learning again
I am all about hands
Hands holding other hands
Hands reaching in deep dark spaces
To rub feet
And braid hair
And fingers
I applaud fingers
Pointing to self in answer to 
Who will clean this mess
