for generations to come

when harm has been done, abuse, violence, genocide
to often the silence that was kept, imposed or chosen
allowed the excruciating pain, the insufferable nightmares
to go on & on & on



can I/we choose to shift NOW

can I/we choose to speak up
while being accountable for the harm I/we have done
choose to step up so all that need to be said can be heard



so healing may happen
secure environment may be created
& for generations & generations to come
love, care & taking care may be experienced
