Love Lives Here Again

I wrote something in honor of a federal judge’s decision today to strike down the ban on same-sex marriage here in the state of North Carolina.

it is human

part of the general condition

belong

together

forever

it is hatred

part of the bigoted set

deny

separate

forever

a war was waged

rightfully so

and victory could come

only by way

of the bench

the robe

the final salvo

has been launched

standing victorious

on the right side

of history

Love lives here again!

About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.
