Some might say I’m shallow
I would describe me as a whole.
Regardless of the apt description
I’m aching for humanity’s souls.
My mission in life spreads joy and happiness,
Yet sometimes I fall from the path.
Getting caught in the vitriol and ugliness,
And stuck in their powerful wrath.
So as I continue to struggle
With our current state of affairs.
I want to keep to my mission:
Helping to mend our societal tears
Please won’t you help me reconcile,
How those filled with racism, hate
Can put themselves on a pedestal
And still claim this country as great?
Those concepts to me – antithetical
To helping others move up in their station,
Toward the great ideals of our forefathers
And return greatness to our nation.
But still, that isn’t nearly enough!
We must lead with the following broad message:
Across all peoples and places;
That love and cooperation foremost
Will help heal the rifts ‘twixt the races.
