Better We’ll Be

Better will not be 
Not for them 
if not by me 
Not-all-men 
will not all sacrifice 
Not-all-white-people 
will not all open their eyes 
Pushing my hopes into their future dreams 
is just passing the stuck of our present reality
naming better evolves naturally 
claiming hate fades as life cycles
Not-all-them 
is not any relief
I must show mine 
how to blend action and belief
Must summon all that I already am 
to cultivate all that they already are 
but can’t harvest yet
I must make better 
now 
in me 
around me
not just for them
but with them 
so that by them 
better we'll be
