NaPoWriMo Day 21: Change

As I said yesterday, I have been thinking about the transformative nature of collective change in terms of the environment and any other social justice movement. Well, today on the blog for my graduate program, the founder of the program, Zoe Weil made an excellent post about this very topic. Check it out here

I wrote a poem in response to the blog and also the Ted Talk posted in the blog (which you can see here).

Change

Unconscious behaviors

Compounded collectively

Create an unaware population

That becomes apathetic

The individual

Is unable to see

Their smaller role

In a big problem

Take responsibility for your choices

Live with integrity

Model your values

And embrace goodness

It may be difficult

To change bad habits

But it is worthy

Of our effort

Conscious behaviors

Compounded collectively

Create an aware population

That changes for the better
