IF PEACE IS TO THRIUMPH
The Melting Pot is a city
where everyone seems
to live in harmony...
although racism and hate
sometime make ugly headlines!
On Saturday Ballotelli
brought glory to Italy,
we was praised for his decisive goal;
how can we, as a civilized nation, allow haters
to spread prejudism among us and build a thick wall?
It's ignorance that causes
unkindness to others
of different colors and faiths!
My adapted city should be an example of hope
for everyone who wants to make it their home;
I have lived here and seen changes in people
who came together when tragedy stroke:
the wrathful hurricane Sandy was one of them!
If peace is to triumph, there must be love in all!
