There will be days

There will be days when we find 
 Our constant efforts to do good, 
Be compassionate, fight prejudice and injustice 
Are exhausting. It’s okay, in such a world, 
On such a day, to take a rest; 
 To lie down in the grass, made dry and prickly 
 With the heat of climate change, 
And relax, and close your eyes, 
And dream of a world 
 Where the grass is soft and green 
 And folks are kind, 
 For dreams like these will fuel our future.
