Now. Here. This.

L Belans 5-16-2018 & 9-25-2018 & 11-1-2019 & 5-26-2021

Now is the time of waking up. Turning out. Unwilling to cower.  

Now is the time for fighting back. Rising up. Resist the glower.

 

Burning lands

Brutal words

Belittled lives

Dreams deferred

                                                            Hands Up

 

Here is the time for Furies’ wrath. No BS. Truth to power.

Here is the time for moral rage. Link our arms. Build our tower.

 

Decaying laws

Dirty waters

Damaged souls

Black sons and daughters

                                                            Time's Up

                                                     

This is the day for calling the shots. Radical acts. Democracy’s flower.

Now is the day. Here is the time. In This eleventh hour.
