In marches, in milestones, and also in moments

The times in which you realize you are enough

your head eases into your pillow

toes stretching out with certainty

that children would be proud of

you and your generation

Those moments of integrity


The times in which you feel the world you have been

wishing for and fighting for

is here

for a moment - yes

but you just happened to be paying attention

and within that moment is just

everything


And at the end of the day

how do we know

if the arc has bent a little more towards justice

Are there two buckets either just or unjust

And each moment dropped into one

And then we lift them up at the same time

To make a declaration

Keeping track over time

In marches, in milestones, and also in moments

First, push your ears closer to your beat

feel the thunder of your pulse and the lightning that strikes

with each step of your own feet

Know that everyone you see has dreams given off the same heat


With each breath there's all this linking

between what's in and out

do the hokey pokey shake it all about

I'm not free till we're all free

Are the words coming out of my mouth


Second, press your hands around this globe

Know deep in your heart that it's your home

Ask yourself how deeply can I love this dome

The amount that you love it will equal your fight for justice


With each breath there's all this linking

between what's in and out

do the hokey pokey shake it all about

I'm not free till we're all free

Are the words coming out of my mouth


Third, pull in a breath that takes up every inch of your lungs

feel your mitochondria begin to run

Stare another in the eyes without blinking

your mirror neurons light up, which gets me thinking

With each breath there's all this linking

between what's in and out

do the hokey pokey shake it all about

I'm not free till we're all free

Are the words coming out of my heart

Love and justice

Moving forward at the speed of trust

As we keep looking for solutions in innovation

Remember there is

Nothing novel

About undivided attention,

Unconditional Love,

A high five,

A hug,

A kiss,

The feeling of being heard,

Valued,

Belonging,

Loved,

Just as you are.
