The hatred vulture,
home to roost in self-loathing,
spreading wings over humanity racing towards nothing.
Drive it away,
prejudice is a downfall for all,
a taste in the mouth making what’s sweet taste like salt.
The human race,
its outcome the sum of potentials,
the one and only race making the most of every child.
Spectrum’s one light,
a future built on human diversity,
building blocks of hearts, minds, and all their possibilities.
