Social Justice Poetry

Evening News | A Social Justice Poem by J.K. Durick

Nothing happened today worth mentioning
No bombs, no bullets, no speeches staking
Out our space or theirs, no twisted logic to
Justify our actions, in fact, today the world
Slept late, went to the beach and made a day
Of it, sat in the sand and watched children play
Felt the sun and the slight breeze, hummed
A tune caught in its head, felt joy, and wholeness
Why, it was quiet enough to hear ourselves think
Hear ourselves ask why everyday isn’t this way.
