Thank You

There were thirty of us,
I, the most courteous, spoke on your behalf.
Though collectively we laughed it off like it wasn’t true,
Rest assured, quietly we always thought highly of you.

You taught us the kinds of things you think you only hear about in movies,
To fight for human rights and to fulfill our civil duties.
Because when the day is done and you’ve had your fun,
All that’s left is who you’ve become.

Like you said, it’s up to each one of us and that’s all that matters.
We’ve got the power to make the world a little brighter.
Trust me when I say now, the present is a gift to be thankful for.
Thank you for guiding me from my desk to the world outside my door.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
