Our Own Moment

By: Lisa Acheson

Everyone has a choice to make in life,

Powerful hope that makes our own movements through the willingness of the world

Even though we can’t believe it’s running freely from Monday to Sunday,

because empowerment is not only important,

but to be trusted and respected as something we value….
