Poem by Dan Stone

Yes, I'm alert, awake.
My head's no longer
in the sand.
I'm sitting up straight,
facing what I must
because I can.
I have a point of view
if not a plan.
You have one too.
It's all we really need--
the will to see,
to take a stand.
Open wide the heart,
the mind, the trusting eyes.
Refuse to compromise
the truth you're holding
in your hands.
Take a chance.
Exaggerate that
knowing glance.
You'll be surprised
what you create.
