Did You Get The Call? | Rebelle Society

Did You Get The Call? | Rebelle Society

DelRita Butler
Did you get the call?
I did.
Did you hear your name
in the middle of the night?
That voice egging you on,
nudging you to awaken.
The silent alarm vibrating
through your heart,
bursting your confusion,
this nameless knowing.
This tumult
of soul seeking truths
Are there words
for this disposition?
Come out,
add to the dialog
this hiding no longer suits you.
You’re on the brink
of transformation
and you need to jump in
or defy gravity,
 and float
into the collective
of indie souls.
Or, into the cast
of nameless and
unidentified
seekers of change,
your new family.
So go out.
Be the change.
By doing,
sharing,
creating.
Walk the walk
and talk the talk
in your gifted way,
your language.
Paint the story,
write the story,
sing, dance,
play the story.
Pass it on,
 teach it, grow it,
word by word,
 by mouth.
Be the person
you want to be.
Be the person
you need to be.
Take your hat off.
Sit down
and journal this pause.
Put on sneakers,
grab a towel,
and run this moment.
Pick up your mat,
find space,
and meditate this moment.
But however you do
what you do,
carry someone with you,
forward.
Talk to them,
touch them,
share fears,
share joys,
speak ideas.
Collectively we cannot
effect change by only watching.
We are the town criers.
