You are so much more (Poem)

You are so much more…

than figures on a payslip

than the manifestation of hatred

or musings of a stereotypical racist

 

You are so much more…

than the player of cards

than her gamble with hearts

than his ride down the park

 

You are so much more…

than a position or job title

than collisions with rivals

chasing positions to be revered an idol

 

You are so much more…

than idle gossip and chatter

than mere steps on a ladder

than every former and latter

 

You are so much more…

than an indoctrinated being

than a blind person seeing

than a yes man, agreeing

 

We settle for far less

though ancestors fought hard through the shores

to teach us acts of resilience

and that we, are worth so much more.
