BE THERE

BE THERE

It is a fate,

that the diversity of 64 tribes is oathed in the Sudd, 

not by default.

*

It’s a tribe’s making,

that the land so loathed bleeds and the people flee,

not God’s fault.

*

It isn’t a tribe’s sole responsibility,

the effort of networking tribes into a nation by peace,

but a diversity effort.

*

It’s a citizen’s civic duty

To see any just cause for all the citizens and support.

She/he can’t afford.

*

Be seated not

when there is someone restlessly sitting and standing.

*
Be silent

not when someone cannot freely speak for themselves.

*

Be silent

not when your freedom of expression demands justice for itself.

*

Be there

not because you are wanted there but because you can be there.

*

Be there
when justice and freedom are not there either to you or to them.

*

Be there
When we are all there for us: the beauty of diversity will be there.
