rough draft

by Kimberly Bauer

years ago, a woman that i did not know stared into my eyes and said " you love and care for people so much- it runs through you like a river."
This has resonated with me for I felt like this stranger had seen some truth. Truth, that i now i feel, is a weakness.

I have fought my way out of ignorance. Starved myself away from the force fed bull shit of society. I have educated myself on the facts of the world. I have discovered the injustice of government. I have been awakened to the gross mis treatment of animals. I have learned of the pain of my fellow sisters around the world and I am drowning. .
My every apathetic movement smothers me.
Passion for change erupts inside like an underwater volcano.
But with no action, it turns to ash and I walk the sreets as a crumbling human.
I can feel what they feel, and i can never live another day in ignorance.
this is my purpose. this is my cause. I need a call to arms. I need to save.
I need an action plan or the waves inside my soul are sure to swallow me.
