Day by day, city by city, the burdens on our backs increase.
We are all shouting, blind.
You cannot hear how much we want you to prosper, and we cannot see your pain.
The wall between us is mortared with excuses and accusations.
Votes make laws but people build bridges.
We need honesty not lies.
And maybe for a change — silence, loving silence.
Stop listening to the voices long enough to hear it.
Can you hear it?
Hate shouts but wisdom whispers.
Stop looking at the screens long enough to see it.
Can you see it?
If you’re only living in black and white you won’t see color.
