Russell Brand talks about Revolution

His mother must be proud after all,

fighting addiction isn’t easy. Clean now,

his intelligence, quick as fish, darts fast.

Her brave boy, thrown helter skelter bipolar,

finds ground.

Fear travels quickly, love a little slower.

Expressive, misunderstood,

the cynic’s clown,

the people’s narcissist

but bearing witness,

sharing truth.

Do you step up?
