The Rage and Dreams

September 15, 2016

The rage and dreams inside
I heard that you can’t control the
waves or the weather but you can
learn to surf or to sail your way
through the storm.
But what can you do when the
people or institutions that represent
the waves or storm at the same time
prevent you from having a surf
board or the sails needed to navigate the storm.
Raise your voice, don’t accept anything
as written on stone, shake the institutions,
talk back, ask questions and demand answers.
It is your life, your family’s life,
our country, our planet.
It is easy to surrender to the obstacles,
it is more comfortable to not get involved,
and so is to pass for dead, even when the
rage and your dreams are alive in your heart.
Jorge Castillo, Aug 2016
