All Lives Matter

It’s raining in Baltimore, baby.
But everything else is the same.
…………………– Counting Crows



It’s raining in Baltimore,
anger flooding the streets,
blood and salt and hate
……… rivers,

as if some centrifugal force
has pulled us loose from
our own centers.

I ache for every heart
that beats in equal measure,

the ones who put their lives
……….on the line every day,
the ones who are misunderstood,
the ones who are abused,
the ones who just want to be heard:

All created equal.
All equally destroyed.

    “the ones who put their lives on the line every day” You’re secretly talking about writers.

    “in equal measure” And musicians.
