Artists--By Sandra Stefanowich--Canada


It was in how we couldn't turn and look away
in silence
we listened to what the courageous had to say

that when the deepest of cuts come to mind and blind
amid chaos
in truth, to others and ourselves; we can be unkind

but then heard are voices that can tear walls down
lessons of life
that we can all be kings and queens without the crown

and it's when the music captures and carries us away
soul seeking
our spirits have found the strength for yet another day

as the artists humbly stand before you, hearts on fire
for peace
and understanding, a better world they wish to inspire

it was in how we didn't turn and look away
in one voice
we stood and changed the world today

  1. a beautiful write, my friend - so good to see another poem from you xx

  2. Dear Sandra,
    I like the form you use--quite unique the way lines 1 and 3 rhyme with line 2 forming a nice bridge. But most of all I like your message about the role of art in the lives of people and by extension on the world.
    Thank you.

  3. Nice one, Sandra. Well-written. Thank you for sharing. Continued blessings!
