Non-judgement Day: A Proposal

by Greg Spiro

on this day we will swim
in a sea of listening

on this day we will celebrate
our description and dialogue

on this day we will be charmed by
diversity’s palate of minds and colours

on this day we will roam in a forbidding place
and wonder at its power

on this day we will make light
of our biases and prejudices

on this day we will celebrate mistakes
yours and mine and learn from them

on this day we will refrain from belittling cliche,
and comparison

on this day we will not slur or defame
not betray or inflame

on this day we will open ourselves up
to intimate and universal empathy

on this day we will talk with someone who will
simply understand and we will simply be

on this day we will choose
not opinion but not knowing

on this day we will be happy
for those we thought we didn’t like

and cherish those we love

on this day we will break bread
with those who would kill us

and even those we would kill
on this day we will forgive others and

forgive ourselves
