Swallow

Swallow it all

Murmurs of complaint

Words of protest

Cutting remarks

That slice and dice.

 

Use silence

To unsettle

And unbalance, the

Unmoving apathy

That rests

By hardened tradition

On pillows of ease

Wedged firmly between

What is

And what should be.

 

To win

This asymmetric contest

Embrace

Positive acts of change

And otherwise

Resolve

To just swallow.
