The Right to Give Love Away #poetry #humanrights


Fall Lincoln

Man opens his mouth and words result

making mighty his lofty claims

as he pontificates and struts

self-edification his primary aim

*

the ruler of this world so petty

the rich so powerful and “right”

we worship what is sexually pretty

the poor and lowly we despise

*

hold a ball where you stand

juggle it with two others

gather and clasp a small hand

put aside your druthers

*

turn the balls now inside out

see where a smile grows

it is in the weakest things

beauty’s goodness overflows

*

here’s a right we all possess

if we open up our hearts

look not to grandiose emptiness

sacrificial love a good place to start

“Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”

Prov 31:8 & 9

Today’s prompt at Poets United is Human Right’s Day

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
