What they tell us — NaPoWriMo Day 9

What they tell us

Be strong dear — the world is
yours. A birthright given over
and over and over. Unending.
From this waterway to the
great plains of Africa (and
beyond, in every direction),
life belongs to life.

Tread lightly. Be kind. Strive
to make this place better.

Above all, know:
You belong.
