Sympathy

June 2nd, 2020

These last few days have been intense. The pandemic is still in full effect. We now have civil upheaval entering center stage. We need to be on the side of change. Black Lives Matter. I have turned inward. My brain has been on overload. I have thinking about our history and how things have changed and how they have not. I've been thinking about those who stood up in the past and how they would stand today. How they would be with us now and how they are with us now. So I give my voice in the only way I know how. Maybe by voicing the voices of the past we will feel them joining us and their strength will empower us. 

This is a poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar named Sympathy. Paul was an American poet, novelist, and playwright of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Born in Dayton Ohio to parents who were enslaved in Kentucky before the American Civil War.

These are his words in todays world.
