The Pro Life Generation (a poem)

Screenshot 2018-02-25 at 11.29.03 AM

“Be ye therefore wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”
-Matthew 10:16

Wise as serpents
Harmless as doves
Warriors press on
Armed with love

Do not relent when the
Enemy comes
Persistence will win when
All’s said and done

From centers of hope
To sidewalks & laws
Shall we not go on
In such a great cause?

Frustration and heartbreak
But truth’s on our side
So we’ll be victorious in the
Battle for LIFE!¬†ūüėä

“Shall we not go on in such great a cause?”
-Doctrine & Covenants 128:22

Intellectual Property: Matter Unorganized (a poem)

Intellectual property 
Lines aren’t always drawn clearly
What can I claim is mine to create? 
Where did ideas originate?

If I learn something new, am I free to sell it?
(When someone’s been genius, hard not to be jealous)¬†
If I lay some stake, will somebody sue?
How much do you give credit? Is it even due?

Influences are an amalgamation 
Lessons, mistakes reach a culmination 
But pure creativity is some kind of myth 
True originality doesn’t exist!¬†
ūüôā

Emergency? (a poem)

What you deem an emergency
I may not see so urgently
So carefully, considerately
Think whether not this one’s on me

I won’t be guilt-tripped, can’t be bought
So spare excuses overwrought
May choose to help, or I may not
But if I do, I call the shot

Service never can be forced
I’ll always retain the choice
My own priorities come first and
I refuse to be coerced

The more clearly-defined I live
The more of my heart I have to give

“The most compassionate people I know also have
the most well-defined and well-respected boundaries.”
-Brene Brown
