I know it’s been hard to get out of bed,
but tomorrow is such an important day.
I won’t demand you change your sheets,
or wash your hair,
or find clean clothes to wear.
Because I have a greater favor to ask of you.
Please leave the sanctuary of your home,
find a polling place, and vote.
Even if the lines are long.
Even if the sun is gone.
Even if you think you don’t matter.
It’s time to make your voice heard too!
America, please. Go vote!
Today is the last day of OctPoWriMo. I wrote this poem on Monday with the intent of posting it on November 5th (the day before Election Day) but why wait?
Here is the polling place locator from Vote.org. Please encourage other’s to vote too.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by my blog, liked, and commented during OctPoWriMo.
Best of luck to those who are diving into NaNoWriMo after this. Wishing you endless sources of inspiration and a steady stream of words.
