Tough Times

Jada Adgerson and Gianni Morsell

For the headaches
and the heat aches
For the sickness
and the illness
For the endings
and the beginnings
For the drop-outs
and the lock-outs
For the tearing
and the crying
For the deaths
and the dying
For the sadness
and for depression
For the white-out
and the black-out
For the logic
and the wisdom
For the struggles
and the dog days
For the past
and the past lives
For the problems
and the things we tried
For the trials
and the verdict
For the lies
and the crisis averted
For the backstabs
and the hurt
For the parents
and the children
For the right
and the people
For the time that passes
and the time gone
For the moving on
and the searching
For the struggle
and our movement
 
-Gianni Morsell
