Redemption Song

Sing a mindful melody. Lift spirits of the disease-stricken and sorrow-ridden. Reach high notes for all marginalized communities fighting for basic rights. Scream, hum, and lip-drum for Mother Nature; sway her mountain hips and ocean soul. Chant for children and the elderly, the abused and confused. Holler for the NEA, LGBTQ, and that endangered species known as young black men in America. Sing birds, sing humans, sing instruments. Breathe in prevailing winds of contempt, blow out a mighty song of peace. One that can shatter the devil’s flaming guitar into a million pieces.
