“Woke” means to be unafraid.
We do not fear children learning about
History – our mistakes and successes
Science – beginning of life, stars and planets, health
Religions, all and atheism
Laws – rights, justices and injustices
Freedoms – owning their bodies, voting
Thinking critically and independently.
We do not fear adults
Owning their bodies, voting, living secure and safely
Choosing their genders, partners, lifestyles
Seeking higher education
Demanding nonprofit, affordable, healing healthcare
Earning a living wage that pays for food, clothing, shelter, transportation.
We support politicians who
Speak the facts
Protect all voting rights
Establish equitable taxes
Revitalize the Middle Class
Honor the elderly.
“Woke” means we see the darkness in your chosen ignorance, the
Attacks on the good
Abuse on the vulnerable
Gunning down of our babies in school
Gunning down of our neighbors on the street, in the malls and clubs
Controlling, anti-female legislation
Fascist, intolerant Supreme Court.
Woke is not a thing.
Woke is me. Woke is us. Woke is We the People.
Fear us. For in the darkness, we will shine.
