language arts, blood-algebra, These.
these you walk through
seventeen, no — nineteen reflections
who will never mend
enter you and your objections
war in classrooms must end

we have to love our above selves
and think

we are on the brink
of a world transformed
by your voice
yelling, impelling humans
to make the right choice
to evolve our fate
no BS, no hate

the vision of this new world you bless
release to
heartlove blooming, yes
