beto o’rourke

did something


jaw dropping

awe inspiring

did I hear him right?

my husband says

yes, i did


i’ve been having


of decency


this was real

mr. o’rourke

he said

we should work with


who are struggling


for their people

to keep

their place

their land

homes, families


with growth

and hope

he said things

like that

out in the open

out in the air

out in the places

that have the least


for kindness


and its

good sense

beto o’rourke

beto o’rourke

keep talking

on the way

to my state

make it a

national cry

keep it

keep this kindness

  1. Reblogged this on Robby Robin's Journey and commented:
    The world needs more, many more, politicians who encourage the better side of human nature. The kind, compassionate, caring side as opposed to the greedy, self-serving, cynical side. And Lilie’s poem at Tea and Toast with Kindness expresses our thirst for more compassion in the world with such impactful economy of language.

  2. Yes, thank you, Jazz. He’s looking to today and to a future. Change can feel scary, but we have to do things differently if we are interested in positive results. Beto O’Rourke is the possibility for educated, well-informed, reasoned response to issues that can be made better and we just can’t keep kicking them down the road. But, I think he won’t be elected, there’s too much clinging to the old and familiar, too much fear.
