Moral Disconnect (Prompt 19)

What is the importance of one strand of hair
one grain of sand
one drop of water
one singular ant

Don’t make this political
it’s critical you understand
that choosing not to take a stand
is part of the problem

It doesn’t affect you personally
you’re just one vote
you’re just one voice
you say it doesn’t make a difference

The difference between us is not
race gender financial
age orientation preference
and it is not an opinion

If everyone decided all at once
their voice doesn’t matter
their vote doesn’t matter
their support doesn’t matter

The world would never change
you cannot count on others
to care any more than you do
it’s your choice to not contribute

This is moral obligation
and you just can’t be bothered
so I won’t bother
with you
