Can you see them made up as throw pillows?
The other day I visited a blogger friend whose passionate about change. I started to write a comment that turned into a poem. Instead I'll post my thoughts here, and add a link here so you can read what provoked my response. Some of you may not agree with Tara's perspectives, but she always makes so much sense, and her heart is made of pure gold! Tara this is for you, sorry I didn't comment the other day when I was moved to tears! Be sure to listen to Pink's song as you read along.
But you stood strong to your convictions
You are the heart of decency, empathy
Truth and responsibility
You could have walked away
Nestled in comfort, elevated in a new life
Instead you speak loudly for those without a voice
For those without a choice
For those with less,
You speak the mind of the fearful ones
Scared of opposing wrath
Committed to change you bravely lead the way
Educating the unaware,
Standing for the old healthy
Other nations look to you with respect
Thank you for your voice of reason
I am proud to know a woman
Of your quality, and substance
A passionate woman
Daring to speak against opposition
Heroic enough to speak the truth
Because you could have walked away!
