The Reckoning ~ an evolution rising ✨ #BeInspired #RRBC #Poetry

Welcome! I’m so delighted you are here. ♥

Today, I’d love to share the poem, The Reckoning. This piece was inspired by the movement that is taking place before our eyes. There is a fundamental shift, an evolution rising. Regardless of political view, gender, race, ethnicity, etc. it’s impossible not to be profoundly aware of this awakening.

Youth are using their voices and demanding change. Women (men too) are standing in solidarity, united in will. Voices are now the vessel, the catalyst for change.

Their courage dignified, is to celebrated.

I dedicate this piece to anyone fighting a battle or act of injustice. Stay brave and remain noble in your quest.

  1. Wow! Natalie, powerful words and sentiment … I was hooked from your first words of ‘Don’t retreat into silence’ – it’s always the easier option but commendable and heartening that more and more are fighting to have their voice heard. Beautifully presented as always.

    1. Thanks very much, Annika! The shift is remarkable to see and truly inspiring. I penned this one after watching a student’s passionate plea for change. It moved me to tears. The power of words is profound, indeed. 🙂

    1. So lovely to see you today, Diana. We’re crossing paths many times, and that’s just awesome! This movement is quite inspiring, isn’t it?
      Oh my gosh … I went back and forth on reins and reigns. The message I’m trying to relay in that sentence is that they hold the power to change things (they’re in charge now). My use of “do hold” made me hesitate because reins, as a noun, would be the more appropriate fit. I was going for the verb use, though. When I found numerous sources stating reigns would work here as a verb I went for it. 🙂 It’s so funny and excruciating how much we ponder over our word choices. I find it especially so when I’m writing poetry. But I love it just the same. Cheers to that!
      Wishing you a lovely week. 🙂

      1. I’m so glad you did. I appreciate when writers look out for each other. Cheers to that!
        I discovered my passion for graphic design a little over a year ago and love designing the images. Two passions merging … I can’t stop smiling now. 🙂

  3. A lovely poem, Natalie, and the sort of response I’d expect from you. I always think it’s wise to encourage those who want to do some good in this world, even if it’s not your highest good, even if it’s directly opposed to what you believe to be best. Too many of us get caught up into doing nothing but running the hamster wheel of paying the bills. It’s important to try to make the world at least a little better. And it’s hard because there are always people making money off anything you might want to change. Thanks for the encouraging words. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, Cathleen. It’s fascinating to see people rise when it’s necessary to take a stand. There’s safety in silence, but I truly believe it weighs heavy on one’s heart. To see this movement is inspiring. 🙂
