I Don’t Believe In…

I don’t believe in
looking past people just because of past
decisions
because we all carry scars from where we’ve strayed.

I don’t believe in
hoarding light that could light
darkness
because one Light could set the world on fire.

I don’t believe in
sittin’ pretty when it’s pretty
obvious
that everyone else is just fighting to live.

I don’t believe in
keeping silence just to silence
conflict
when the struggle that results could heal a wound.

I don’t believe in
abandoning risk so as not to risk
failure
because butterflies’ wings don’t grow without a fight.
