2016 Changed Me

2016 changed me.

I felt afraid,

Angry,

Sad,

Frustrated,

Hopeless.

I saw acts of terror,

Hate,

War,

Fear.

I wished for strength,

Peace,

Love,

Acceptance.

I tried to understand,

Learn,

Overcome,

Help.

And in doing so, I became more empathetic,

More politically active,

More socially aware,

More inspired.

I will change 2017.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
