Revolution’s Crossroad

The poster on the wall stated
“It takes one person to create change!”
If you have enough Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook followers.

Change will not happen with no commitment.

People dumping ice buckets of water on their heads
In order to gain new followers
Rather than awareness
Without even questioning the cause.

Change will not happen with ignorance.

Looters camouflaged
In the crowds of passionate peaceful protesters
Looking for self-gain rather than social change.

Change will not happen with apathy.

The poster on the wall may put you in the driver’s seat but
Do you have enough
Determination, information, and passion
To ride the long road
To Change?

A response to Gil Scott Heron’s “The Revolution Will Not be Televised” by Lynda Wu and Darya Taranets
