It All Falls Down
A Therapeutic Piece by Cycely Parker

For the kindness of strangers
For the progress of those oppressed
For the hope of those who “Have A Dream”
For the country who cried “Bring me your poor, your hungry, your tired”

It’s…

For your mentally ill
For your basic liberties stolen
For your believers in the human race
For your life coaches who couldn’t possibly tell you how to get through 2016 (#45)
For the parents of mass school shooting victims

Falling…

For kids with hoods and those
who just want to play their music
For barbecues in the park
And for “those people” who just want to make it home safely
For every stare driving down the road
And flashing lights that stop your heart

Down.

For the fear that cripples you when you get out of your car or leave a grocery store
For those who just want to LIVE another day…

It.

Falls.

Down.
