Taking the high road,
Does well to placate,
Calms those around me,
Can maintain the peace,
And promote goodwill.
This is not the time,
To placate or calm,
Maintain a false peace,
Or promote goodwill.
Now the truth must be,
Told and told plainly,
So in this case I’m,
Taking the low road.
Language monitored and banned,
Silence is far more preferred,
Than a single dissenting voice.
Love regulated and mocked,
In the name of moral outrage.
Subjugation based solely on,
One’s gender or racial profile.
Dear friend please do remember,
Though you believe as you believe,
Interference is not called for,
In the lives of anyone.
Mankind is moving forward,
Not toward immorality
But toward a new kind of love,
Requiring minds to be open.
We change not for the sake of change,
But to improve and make progress –
To care for our fellow man,
To provide freedom for all.
Will you accompany us,
Into the future we seek,
Or will you live in the past,
Ruled by myth and superstition?
Is today so much the same – nondescript?
Is it made out of all the same old stuff?
Does a daily pattern play on repeat?
Do the same obstacles stay in your way?
Change the script with new perspectives, new thoughts.
Bring in some new to mix with the old stuff.
Put the pattern on shuffle with new goals.
Don’t move the obstacles, just change your path.
