Be the Answer

By Allison Stein, Assistant Editor and Poetry Editor

 

Be strong enough
To break down boundaries of fear,
To unearth the emotion buried under superficial skin,
To amplify forgotten lyrics of love.

Be honest enough
To filter the world through a kaleidoscope of truth,
To savor the raw rhythm of voiceless dreams,
To listen to heartbeats that go unheard.

Be patient enough
To discover a wish worth wrestling for,
To channel the music trapped in your veins,
To caress the wounds etched on bruised souls.

Be brave enough
To believe the whisper of your conscience,
To excavate songs from silenced spirits,
To be the answer to someone else’s prayer.
