Counting On You (poem)

Stand up...
     even when your knees shake;
Speak out...
     even when your voice cracks;
Take action...
     even when your nerves freeze;
Stay put...
     even when your pulse races;
Do something...
     even when you're unsure.

The forgotten,
The marginalized,
The outcast,
The othered,
The dispossessed
     are counting on it.
