how do you do it?

how do you keep on going
when the world is falling apart,
when your answer to the question
“red or blue?” determines if you’re worth it…
or not?

how do you turn away
from the raw pain in people’s eyes
denied their right to live, to love, to be-
all because others believe
in the lies?

how do you go about your day
knowing death is just a sound-byte away
a video feed blasted to the world-
a woman’s last minutes
on display?

how do you do it?
i want to know
how do you keep on going
when there’s no other place
for us to go?
