I choose love, not hate;
I hear Martin Luther King knocking at the door.
I choose poetry, deny so called fate
I hear so many poets as they roar.
Maya Angelou says, ‘be the rainbow
in someone else’s cloud.’
I am a rainbow and I forgive, but still call
for injustice to be ploughed.
Mahatma Ghandi shows people how to resist
with non violence, so I wage peace not war;
I don’t wait for it to come knocking at the door.
Actions always speak louder than words
but words have power
that can be absurd
or turn humanity into
a soaring bird.
I choose for my children
more than debate.
May they educate
illuminate, radiate then eradicate
I dream we’ll walk through unity’s gate.
