powerful diversity

within dissent, there is power in simple community
within divisions, mere coexistence can provide radical commentary

and when the threat of exploiting prejudices into
ramifications capitalizing off hate-filled hyperbole
is high and tensions are frightening,

something needs to be set aside to provide
a haven for those shifting their footing to unequal

a time with a focus of inclusion,
a place where i walked around with an open smile
happy to see the way that different people united

i saw young girls chanting,
“we want justice
we want peace”
with brilliant signs that made me believe in the future generations

i heard speakers that unveiled the
openly insistent hearts of these leaders
for equality

i saw “love for your brother what you love for yourself”

i felt a preclusion to the future of humanity
in waves of support,
a public demonstration to proclaim that
the spirit of defensive acceptance
would prevail

with no slandering intent but
to proudly tout that humans are humans,
differences are differences,
and diversity is powerful
