For the rest of us

We are not Baltimore,
but we are all from someplace
rejected and despised
by someone with the power
to support change for good
but who chooses instead

to mock the towns and cities,
the counties and countryside,
where some of the most vulnerable live
but where people care for one another,
seek justice, offer compassion,
strive for change.

Because, if Elijah Cummings’ people,
the 7th congressional district,
the constituents of hope,
are mis-tweeted,
we all are,

and, if we are all Baltimore today,
then maybe we can become
a new country of communities
that believes in tomorrow.
