it requires a benign acquiescence
to regard the perception of others,
so much different from one's own:

ours is not to wear their shoes,
but to welcome the foreign feet
that settle here - far from home,

where we at best would interlope,
feel at odds, might barely cope,
yet should gain at least a modicum
of empathy, grace and decorum...

as that humble, hopeful immigrant
has done.

the more openly we greet them,
the more easily they will blend.

TOTAL DD SURPRISE!
thank you Lisa, beeinthebottle , for suggesting.
thank you to neurotype for featuring.

as poetry, i'm amazed for it to be considered 'DD quality'.
but, i am proud for it to be recognized for what it says about our relationship with the immigrant.

lets pass that legislation!

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-11-14
on greeting the out-lander by *alapip "puts folks in the shoes of 'Out-landers' through its comparison of how we deal (or don't deal) well with other cultures ourselves. It shook up my complacency in a very good way" (suggester's words). ( Suggested by beeinthebottle and Featured by neurotype )
