this day

on this day
i will not listen to the voices
of hubris, triumph, and ridicule;
but pause to hear
the tears of hungry children,
the broken souls of the ignored,
the anger of the kept down,
and the whispers of hope
swirling and swirling until they become
a whirlwind of justice scattering
those with hearts hard as nails
who stand in its path.
