This word we hear in many contexts
What does it mean what are next steps
Is it a program atoning for the past
Evoking leaving what we know can’t last
Affirmative action quotas and such
Reverse discrimination lawsuits as crutch
Labeling formulas all forcing fear
What are the steps to get there from here
When you get beyond the threats and bluster
It’s about learning growth you can muster
Tolerance openness seeing that others
Aspire like you all sisters and brothers
For critical change do not focus on difference
That is the key to victory deliverance
Sure there are many superficial diversions
None so threatening to call up aspersions
Focus on ways we are the same
Let importance of black white red yellow fade
As this world shifts and dominance reverses
Embrace the new truth stifle all curses
The way to success and feeling clean
Let go of divisions though you may not be keen
Realize whatever you have been told
Stories not truth let them go they are old
Where in your life do you still harbor bigotry?
Does it serve, hurt of honor you?
What changes can you make to demonstrate you no longer tolerate bigotry?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.
My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.
My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
