Division by Tatiaira Herndon


In a better world, I’d live a different life

With less crooked thoughts and a straighter spine

More optimism and a sharper mind

Less anxiously waiting and more time

In a better world, I’d have greater trust

A heart filled with love and a head lacking lust

Lifting others up without the fear of getting crushed

And ridding all dividers dividing us up

By our insignificant differences
