loved equality

Tanka, 3 Parts

the humble man leads
he does not distort the truth,
guiding followers
to better ways of living —
better ways of loving too.

on: equality
we still fight for it, we must.
who will fight for us
if we are not fighting first —
will you step forward to lead?

he involves the world
and acknowledges pure love
it’s a welcome tool.
stand beside us, let us breathe.
in solidarity, now.

*Clay Rivers is the Creative Director and Editor of Our Human Family here on Medium. He pushes me to write at my highest level and forever comments on how “prolific” he believes me to be. However, I sit back, observe his interactions with others, bask in his essays, and am proud to stand alongside a great human being within both the African-American and LGBTQ communities. Jack Herlocker, yours will be next.
