instead they stand like statues / while the people ask for help

and when you feel that it's all darkness
turn on the light inside yourself
and believe      that one person working for years
will alter what is    believe like Ruth Adria
that you only need one 
or a few of us working like children
in the small corner of society
to alter the contours
of the world
tell me when you are stolen
are you still seeking?

watch the stars as they tremble
in their cloth packages
see the dimple in the skin of snow
walk the path of kindness
and love all you encounter
trust that your acts of courage
will reveal who you are to all who find you
believe like Ruth Adria
that you only need one 
or a few of us working like children
to alter what is       the most desperate and dependent
are at the mercy of indifferent government

tell me when you are stolen
are you still seeking?


on the journey
learn from all you encounter
make these kindred spirits your templates
for perseverance
understand that the government is full of people
who do not serve us
instead they stand like statues
while the people ask for help
today I saw homeless man
walking in downtown Edmonton
he had holes in his jeans   and no gloves on
while I watched him   he walked into oblivion


tell me when you are stolen
are you still seeking?
