Love and live simply.

A person needn’t die to see
Heaven’s Light or Hell’s debris.
In every word, with every deed,
We choose the kind of Life we’ll lead.
Hell’s fires light with words of spite
That keep us trapped in endless fight.
Yet if we can forgive and love,
What Life is that but Heav’n’s above?
You see, we choose our fates right now.
Sit back, observe, and you’ll see how.
It’s best that we remember this:
Eternity is in our midst.
Neutrality’s the enemy
Of Progress and Equality.
We cannot stand and idle be
While others struggle to be free.
It isn’t that we hate the State
In which we all cohabitate,
But we must all collaborate
To make our Nation truly great.
So long as some are left behind
And others choose to wander blind,
Justice will be hard to find
And Peace will stay a state of mind.
We must shift from punishment
And remake the establishment;
Correct the Systems’ racial bent
And strive for social betterment.
So do not speak of Unity
While some act with impunity,
But sacrifice Security,
Help others know Serenity.
Life’s about choices.
Every moment’s a test.
Love is how we pass.
