I’ve come to the conclusion
that I’ve never liked exclusion
contentment evolves from inclusion

by embracing diversity
it bolsters me for adversity
as exclusion breeds perversity

so even where there is little love
I gain strength from above
to give bias a determined shove

eradicate ignorance
toss out arrogance
for my own deliverance

we can make our world a better place
if we unite with genuine love and grace
no matter the appearance of our face

don’t cut and paste
it brings bile and distaste
so let’s make real haste

please let’s improve our world
don’t tolerate insults hurled
allow kindness to be unfurled
