A Poem: Call to Action 

No one man is all evil or all good
Each tone in our lives is a shade of gray
Though men do not always do as they should

Horrors have happened where right men have stood
Blackened by apathy, blinder each day
No one man is all evil or all good

Men can be molded, not solid like wood
The rulers over their own human clay
Though men do not always do as they should

Animation, breath, and free will all could
Slow, fade, and wither if men look away
No one man is all evil or all good

Dark and light are easily understood
The eyes must be opened wider today
Though men do not always do as they should

Awaken them, raise their natural half-hood
Truly observe, have the vision to say
No one man is all evil or all good
Though men do not always do as they should

Speaking of...
