Reflections about Choice

Carol A. Hand

If not me, then who will challenge oppression
The most powerful tool I have
Is a sincere and honest question
If you had the power
What kind of world would you create
If you thought it was possible
If you believed it was not too late

My responsibility is to give hope a voice
How others respond is really their choice
Each of us has our own path, gifts, and task
Mine today is merely to ask
If you had the power
What kind of world would you create
If you thought it was possible
If you believed it was not too late

  1. Beautiful poem and powerful question, Carol. And what is perhaps the most troubling is that we each have the power already. If each of us used it and spoke up, the sound would ripple over the world. ❤

  2. I couldn’t respond to this yesterday, I didn’t have the words. But a long-dead poet gave me the words today:

    “To live, free and single like a tree
    but in brotherhood like a forest
    this longing is ours.”
