Conveying to the foreign other

A sincere aspect of culture

Bring to sound a melody that is quintessentially pure~

Poetry and Gender

Girl or guy,

Male or female,

Poetry is not sly,

It simply has multiple answers to the word why,

More variety than the clouds floating through our shared sky~

In various countries, people are identifying unbalanced gender issues in their respective societies and are making movements toward eliminating such unfair practices and habitual mannerisms.

Free Minds Free People

Free Minds, Free People was exciting because most of the conferences I go to are dominated by white people, mostly white men with gray hair. Far as I could tell, I was the only gray-haired white man at this conference. In fact, I was at least 10 years older than the next oldest person and 30 years older than most of the radical, free-thinking, education-minded educators in beautiful, cool-yet-warm attendance. Never have I seen a conference of 1200 people with more diversity of shapes, sizes, colors, cultures, and genders more united in philosophy and approach to life.

Nuclear Elimination through lyricization

Nuclear detonation

Can be stopped by an often-ignored action,

One which receives little to no attention.

Nuclear elimination,

Can begin,

Once once reaches the realization,

Of the ability of lyricization~

Lines of Social Change

There are times/

when we grow tired of paying hostility's fines/

Moments when we decide not to whine/

When we decide to scribe down lines/

Lines to help us extinguish hostility and its fines~

To help us see each other in a new way/

May we hold hands and think again another day/

Looking into each others eyes as we say/

A welcoming and heartfelt, hey~
