Poem… i vote

i vote

–november 26, 2017–

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

i don’t vote for
i vote against
against bigots, racists, sexists & intolerance

i vote will appear in a future book of poems (release date | July 2020).


Hatred & Its Progeny: Bigotry, Racism, Sexism, etc.

It begins with an unfounded suspicion or fear of individuals or groups of people. Eventually, hatred toward fellow humans sets in. After hatred is born, it gives birth to bigotry; and bigotry to racism, sexism, etc.

Refuse to let suspicion and fear control your life. Be truly free! You don’t want to live with hatred, bigotry, racism, sexism, etc. Free yourself from intolerance.

Hatred and its progeny will only make you unhappy and paranoid. At the same time, you will make the lives of others worse.

Choose Love!
