Poetry :: Let’s Remember This Energy

A poem by Wambui JL
Let's remember this energy.
Let's remember to tell all who care to listen
About these days
Of true awakening
Of palpable action
Of forever change
Of things never being the same again.

Let's remember this energy.
Let's remember how it felt
When we spoke truth
When we said what we had to
When we resisted abuse
When we said NO!
When we said it's enough!
We are tired.

Let's remember this energy.
Let's remember that we should never
Sell our souls to those who
Don't
Won't
Can't
Aren't capable of appreciating us
For who we always were
For who we are
For who we will become.
May they come to truly know us.

Let's remember this energy.
Let's always remember that be they
White saviours or homeguards
Lovers or Haters
Family or Friends
Bosses or Colleagues
Known or Strangers
Police or Politicians
They don't deserve our essence.

Let's remember this energy.
Let's remember that
We will work in this town again because
We are worthy
We are talented
We are deserving
We are living in our purpose.

Let's remember this energy.
Let's remember it when we need to 
Show up for each other
Be that shoulder
Save that life
Pound that fist in the air
Carry that placard
Stand that ground.

Let's remember this energy.
Let's remember it tomorrow,
In a month
In 6 months
In a year
It in 10
In 50.

Let's. Remember. This. Energy.
