I want to wear a hijab

I want to wear a hijab,

Carry a rainbow flag,

Go to Standing Rock

And stand in front of Planned Parenthood.


I want to picket,

Write letters,


Email and

Make phone calls.


I want to be persuasive,

Engage my confederate flag-hanging neighbor in conversation,

Save the earth,

Feed the hungry

And house the homeless.


I want to not be scared,

Not act based on fear,

Embrace love and compassion,

Share it with the world,

And hope it spreads.

    This is beautiful Kristin, I have a crazy idea…can’t wait to share it with you in case it has any merit for work…or I need to let go of it as it is that crazy.
