Seeds of Humanity

I am guilty of

Taking our freedom for granted,

Remembering annually how

Our forefathers fought

To make it so.

Yet I see evidence in

My great country that

Fear,

Hatred,

Bigotry,

Terror,

Violence

Continue to exist despite

Our freedom.

What we need is more

Love,

Peace,

Understanding,

Compassion,

Patience,

Optimism.

Not just here

But everywhere on Earth.

It’s time to spread these

Seeds of humanity to

Give future generations

A chance to be truly free.
