Time to Save Ourselves

Behind each “can’t”
is the truth that is “won’t,”
a power that answers
to “don’t.”
Leaders who don’t lead
tell those in need,
they shouldn’t,
what they could share
they wouldn’t.
it’s time we stopped
It’s time we saved ourselves.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
