This is our deepest shame

There is no superiority..

From this, we must refrain.

.

We very much to blame.

In our quest for authority.

This is our deepest shame.

..

Must we all be the same?

Seeking uniformity.

From this, we must refrain.

.

It is driving us slowly insane.

We can rejoice in our diversity.

This is our deepest shame.

.

Arise and with a sure flame.

Celebrate our unity.

Let’s change to a new game.

This is our deepest shame.

From this, we must refrain.

Shameful.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
