Behold the Revolution

A time is coming,
and perhaps is at hand,
when the people 
will stand up
and demand 
better representation,
equality in all things,
justice for the marginalized and forgotten,
a seat at the table,
and leadership positions
in all three branches of government,
in board rooms of companies,
in pulpits and religious institutions.
Dear Lord,
may it be so now;
may it begin with me.
Behold the revolution.
