fast food workers get a raise

erase the mark of former prisoners

help all people learn to read and write

help people to maintain a belief in change

case dismissed and sealed, embarrassment relieved

forgiveness is not so strange.

How do we carry on living? Where do we source clean water?

Non detectable  levels of cfoas in the waters.

How do we stop hate crimes?

Once we study a heart and we study a tiny kitten.

The tiny kitten pulled out of garbage bags.What

Will we think? I still wear a watch. I am still right.

I will live with the fear of new development

Hope is the thing with the feathers.

off we go, into the wild blue yonder,

get back up and believe.

Happy New Year!
