Verdicts of Prejudice
It doesn't matter how I dance,
my experience or lack of it
when I strive to be the best
for myself and my sole partner.
It doesn’t matter who bed,
who I wed for goodness sake.
The race or sex or creed of these
matters only to me and mine.
It doesn’t matter what I believe
regarding the highest one.
My holy bond to the divine
is for my soul to evolve.
It doesn't matter how I live,
in the end we all perish.
To embrace this life is the challenge
met by mortals on earth's surface.
I will not seek cold evil
while I pursue my private course.
To be myself is not license
to run roughshod over a world.
I hold onto the golden rule,
treating others as I would like.
I treat others better than myself
to show caution for their regard.
This is not to say I will deter
from my life when all is well.
An attitude of disapprove
will be sole property of the rude.
The freedoms that I indulge
are meant to be had by all.
I'll disagree with what you do
while fighting for your right to choose.
I'll dance as if I was the fool
even while I think I'm cool.
Outward is not what counts,
my inner spirit does the strut.
I'll honor those I do embrace,
my love and lust will move me there.
Relationships are hard enough,
I'll find the ones that suit me best.
Divinity and I will be as one,
though others may not recognize
the links between a human soul
and other realms of sacred hosts.
These choices reflect back to me,
I am strong enough to bear their weight.
The karmic aspects I must reject
spring from verdicts of prejudice.
