Social Justice Poetry

Born out of Cause | A Social Justice Poem by JD DeHart

We are the splintering
of a dictator’s hammer,
the sign held high
in peaceful protest.
We are the line drawn
and the word No
when it needs to be
spoken, check and mate
along with check
and balance. We are
the ancient writ
and the common tongue.
We are Reason and Kindness
and Wisdom when all else
dissolves, pointing back
to history, indicating
the nature of our souls,
whispering: Learn, Grow,
and most of all Love.
