National Poetry Month: Poem 20

Poem 20

Human Rights

By Michelle Garren Flye

Defend their rights

As if they were your own,

Because they are.

Stand up for their beliefs

As if you believed the same,

Because you do.

Embrace the people they love

As if you lived with them

Because their love is your life.

They are not they when you

Remember how close they are

To your human heart.
