Share The World

Further down
and across town
we once thought
all culture should
assimilate
that all identities,
expressions, and personalities
should slowly and
surely separate
with no room to
think or cultivate
the heartfelt gifts
one can create,
more recently they have used the term
“gentrification” as the direction
we should take as an
entire nation.
But we find ourselves
shedding more and more
tears as days pass
to months and months
pass to years as more
and more people
think that mass violence
is the way to feed
the misled conscience that
has been emptied of
any tolerance
and filled instead
with disturbed cultural
fears.
We need to build up
instead of always
stripping down accepting
variety in any big
metropolis or small rural
town being mindful that
life does not consist
of only one way
but a sharing of our
world on every
God Gifted day.

    • Thanks Alex!! Abrazos!! I guess this one wasn’t happy go lucky enough for many on here. People are too afraid of every other culture in this country, be it national cultures, religious, gender etc… Once upon a time, there were generations of people who CELEBRATED diversity and variety in America. We FEARED having a country like Nazi Germany or Communist Soviet Union where people marched in single lines all the same way in all the same clothes with no allowance of mind but on the govenments rules. We have become so fearful of anyone of any difference and all we do is play video games where we can shoot them, and then many realize their games by going out and actually doing it. Its friggin sad!!
