This is a lament I wrote about the current state of affairs in the world. It’s called “Listen.” 

Maybe now is a good time to listen 

To ourselves 

To each other 

To spirit 

To plants and animals and trees

To those we’ve labeled different or unworthy 

Those we’ve judged as “other”

Listen to the lost, the forgotten, the meek, the weary, the wayward, the wretched, and the wild…

Let’s listen to ANYONE other than whoever the hell we’ve been listening to

‘Cause they’ve been wrong now 

For quite a while…

-Carolyn Glackin
