Loving World


Loving World
by Ted L Glines

Politics is not my thing, platforms leave me cold,
kiss the babies, get the vote, it's gotten more than old.
Religions just divide the peeps, pidgeonholes for fools
where access to 'heaven' is defined by Founder's rules.
Racial pureness, what a joke, it really has no part,
any time we may review the color of your heart.
Your sex is your own business, be it hetero or gay,
your marriages are sacred, no matter what 'they' say.
Those bigoted opinions only serve to (*beep*) the masses,
it's time we took another look, through clear and loving glasses.
'My world is more about myself, my path, my history,
than any thing that you can do or say in front of me.'
My vision sees you standing there, no goodness or badness,
and I will hug your loving heart in open-hearted gladness.
We must turn away one day, burn these flags we have unfurled,
and learn to cheer each other on to build a loving world.
