Read, Rise, and Resist
rhymes that spell inform,
deform, reform or uniform.
Read well to inform
yourself about truth and brainstorm
its realities and form;
to face circumstances that deform
right and wrong’s multifaceted uniform;
Rise to defend the norm
of safeguarding all human form
using justice’s ensiform
principles that prevent humanity’s deform
with greed and abuse’s storm.
Resist ignorance’s linguiform
shortcomings to transform
your dreams as you perform
your daily duties paced with reform.
When you inform
those around you of the norm
you are sharing truths’ landform
blocking double standards hailstorm
instilling standards that transform
Only then resistance’s platform
is born to tear lies that deform
life’s beauty and humanity’s uniform
trajectory of growth and reform.
So read, rise and resist
if you wish to persist.
Dreams with action plans
separate dreamers from realists;
preachers from reformists;
cowards from activists.
