Increasing Delight


Special gift my day unto
This morning I learned something new

Liberates my thinking, yup!
Opens my horizons up

To the folks I’ve left behind,
Just looks like I changed my mind

Understandings now include
Their limited attitude,

And I’ve added something more
We hadn’t understood before

So — I haven’t changed at all
Standing just a bit more tall

Understood them all along
Not saying now that they are wrong

(Though very swiftly came to be
They leveled that same charge at me)

I admire diversity
Nor seek the same everyone be

It is my increasing delight
To find everybody right!

And where they find, despite, me wrong
I find a way to, too, begone
