Feb. 13, 2019: "It Snowed Again Outside Today," by Mr. Ben
I try to upstand and not bystand,
But I can’t seem to understand the why.
‘Why’ is just a question, and questions have no ground.
And in that rift, it’s hard to sift and take in what I’ve found.
Now I vow not to react, but interact
Action plans ask how.
‘How’ is just a question and questions have no ground
And in that space it’s hard to place where’s up and where is down.
So, I know kindness and blindness both grow root
when they’re given chance to grow.
Growth, it needs direction from connection to the ground.
Up and out, I scream and shout in silence and in sound.
Here I am, I act as I remain.
It snowed again outside today.
