Also in Moments | An Original Poem by David Charles Metler

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
