Intolerant Society

Intolerant society
That always fails to see
The other side of the coin
That’s focussed on the “me”
That can’t perceive another’s thoughts
Or think another way
That has a mind-set that is fixed
That can’t see light of day

Intolerant society
Where is altitude view?
Blinded to perceptual vision
Failing to see the “you”
Where anything that’s different
Just simply can’t be right
Regarded so suspiciously
And laced in fearful sight

Intolerant society
A shameful place to be
A place that stands injustice;
Shunning diversity
A place where there will not be peace
Until the question’s asked
“How might that be, if in their shoes?”
Are you up to that task?

Intolerance

 

Tolerance

A subscription to such freedom
Away from bigotries
To tolerance and patience for
All nationalities

Toleration that is a fair
Objective attitude
Allowing different races all
An equal magnitude

The practice of recognizing
Beliefs that others hold
With lenience, forbearance and
Acceptance ever bold

Dispelling with such bias
That comes with prejudice
Broad-mindedness and fairness
Less judgement and malice

Tolerance to accommodate
The you, the them, the me
Committing to a higher plane
A world that is more free
