Hold Hands - Poem by Eric Cockrell

lovers have forgotten
how to hold hands...
and children have forgotten
the wonder of being outside.

workers have forgotten
how it feels to be appreciated.
old people have forgotten
how it feels to be needed.

everyday people have forgotten
how it feels to grow their own food.
students have forgotten
the joy of learning...

the American people have forgotten
how it feels to believe...
in equality, dignity, and hope...
how it feels to hold hands!
