Protection your Tribe

Demonize or Humanize
choose your words
it might just be
you in that world
the circumstances
may be out of our scope
but the words we live in
does not have to be untold.

Speak into every day
that which you hope to achieve
for often the words that are said
are only to deceive
the situation you are in
does not need to define
so while you are walking through
fail not to run or hide.

You just might be demonized
and called names unknown
but remember the truth that lives inside
is your words to change your world.
