it is heartening
to see the spirited young
rally for justice
but we are jaded, hoping
reality doesn’t win

they are dazzling
reminding us of ourselves
before life happened


For Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge using synonyms of the words renew: hearten, rally and fresh: young, spirited, dazzling.
