You say tomorrow there will be more time.
Today you have to focus on living.
You have a deadline,
laundry to do.
The ducks are calling on you,
and they need to be put in a row.
Tomorrow you can look at this deeper,
listen harder, let yourself feel it closer,
today you have to get on with your life…
But tomorrow is today
and this is all of our lives,
the revolution is now and your presence is required.
These aren’t dishes that can wait to be washed,
or inconsequential errands waiting to be ran.
These are lines you need to draw now,
a voice you need to bring forth.
Show up. Show up. Show up.
Open your mind,
strengthen the force.
If you focus on simply living,
on keeping your ducks in a row,
then you are keeping the old ways in motion.
Stop the motion.
Break the cycle.
The change is here, will you join us?
The castles you build will crumble in time,
but your place in this fight will carry on,
the change your spark today can light a 1000 torches.
Give up the sovereignty of doing your dishes
and tackling your to do list,
Set aside the demands of ‘you,’
become a part of the ‘we.’
Tomorrow is today.
Your presence is required.
