escalation; awareness

Standard

If I weren’t here; I

Could be amongst rubble

In Nepal

If I weren’t here; I

Could be precariously

Hiding, in my house, from the riots

In Baltimore

If I weren’t here; I

Could be a Syrian–

Displaced in a camp

But, I am here.

And I feel a responsibility

To carpe diem,

All the while; aware of the

Tenuousness of our global situation.
