Forget the Pride


Remember:  You, to them, are “they,”
So make a way
To understand –
Extend a hand.

Examine self with open eyes
Unchain the lies –
Let truth prevail,
For bonds are frail.

Forget the finger-pointing blame.
Inciting shame
Produces hate.
Don’t take the bait.

What matters the skin
Or shape of the eyes
From which well the tears
Of final goodbyes?

What matters the weapon
When brandished with hate?

Teach precious ones love
While proud tongues debate.
