Be Humane

Be Human

Be Humane

Are you holier but not humane
Are you whiter but darker in heart
Are you brighter but bears no light
If you are deeply rooted, widely sprout,
Elegantly tall, and fullness of qualities
That beckons for handshakes but you are
Still comely in fruitlessness of the heart
Swim your body and soul in the meekness
Of murky waters to be clean.
