Righteous Anger


Eternal love is
the water which
extinguished
my mortal anger
calming my intent

And yet,
eternal love is
the fire igniting
the immortal
anger within to
be with
voice among
the voiceless
to stand with
the oppressed as
a face as
a heart as
a human as
one not in
identity but
in love

Eternal love gives
strength and
courage and
peace

Eternal love is
lifting me into
action as
creation in
moments of
destruction

Righteous
Anger rising
from and
guided by
love is
a powerful
seed of
revolution of
evolution of
change

Planted
eternal love
cracks
the seed with
fire and
waters
it’s growth in
the garden of
peace

Righteous anger is not violent

It is
strong and
deliberate and
living in
the heart of
the lion and
the lamb

Righteous in
love we walk
together
following
the way of
truth…
If you’re not outraged you’re not paying attention.
