Higher Ground

I refuse to talk with bigots,

does that apply to you


And freely open up my mind,

to greet the world anew


Discriminatory and hateful barbs,

divide and tear apart


What poetry tries its best to mend,

inside an honest heart


Those few most vile hide behind

their fear inspired views


That bring about the worst in us,

to slander and accuse


As days grow short, my time is spent,

beneath a sun that shines


Speaking to the highest traits

—humanity divines
