VOTE … Nothing More To Say

2 min read

Kat Myrman is a creative artist with words. Many times her work is an appeal for social justice and a call to action on the part of readers. Like the following. I read this immediately after hearing an impressive speech by former President Obama. Two great motivators to start my day. Now we come to the action part.


Love and Hate – a Cleave Poem

(A cleave poem is three poems in one often with two contrasting views expressed. Read the left side / top to bottom, then the / right side and finally read the entire / line across top to bottom.)

our intention is love though / hate sells
it is hard / fear is a motivator
to love / lies, repeated, doubled down
in times like this / over and over
when so much is at stake / become the truth
we don’t have the luxury / because people are fools
to rest on the sidelines / easily falling
wallowing in despair / for alternative facts
remember this / forget the truth
we are not victims / its a brilliant plan
we are over-comers / victory is a lie away
lovers of justice / power is everything
followers of peace / weaklings are losers
freedom is not free / you have to fight
so let your intention be / survival of the fittest
love and only love / is our motto
for only love will / be afraid, be very afraid
save us from ourselves / let us save you

  1. This is such an amazing poem, one of the very best I’ve ever read on WordPress. I love how the left side of the poem perfectly captures the Left and the right the Right. I think my favourite part is we don’t have the luxury to stand on the sidelines. Isn’t that the truth. I’m glad you and Kat are using your voice!
