Polar Solutions, Individuals Targeted
Poem for Day 015 - 20141008
There is a social issue,
difference, deviation, departure.
The thorn in your side:
long term neglect,
abuse, marginalization, torment.
How will we address this?
How will we fix this?
What can we do?
We have the fix, but from two fronts,
Dualistic solutions are in contentious battles.
Two sides against a common ailment,
Two doors mark the issue as their target.
Door number one wishes no trouble,
talk not of the past, only the future
calls out for blindness and label rejection.
Embrace blindness, freedom from labels!
Only people are here:
no black or white
no female or male
no rich or poor!
Stepping forward with no bias,
moving forward with no distinctions.
Door number two has the past in the sights,
a foundation for things to come.
Celebrate diversity, address the past issues.
Promote distinctions, fix inequalities!
Only divergences are here:
past wrongs to be righted,
cultures to be celebrated,
discrepancies to corrected!
Stepping forward with variation appreciation,
moving forward with social realignment.
Actions align, forces marshaled.
The enemy is a societal ill,
the individual becomes the target.
How will this end when the doors open,
when best intentions forward charge?
This will not end well:
individuals targeted in the cross fire!
