To Turn Away (From Politics)

to turn away from politics
is not succumbing to apathy
as some would have you believe

there is more than politics

to turn away from politics
is turning away from
pointing at someone else

they are not your problem

to turn away from politics
is turning away from
the superficial arguments

the superficial blinds them

to turn away from politics
is turning away from
false differences

we are not so different, and

to turn away from politics
is to focus on
our lives, our culture

history is produced by us

to turn away from politics
is to focus on
family and friends, careers

the true work, our lives
