Art Sanctuary

I would always choose to be the person running
rather than the mob chasing

I would prefer to be the person laughed at
rather than the teenagers laughing

I always admired the men and women who sat down
for their rights

And held in disdain the men and women who spat
on them

Everyone deserves Sanctuary a place to go where you are
safe

Art offers Sanctuary to everyone willing
to open their hearts as well as their eyes

-Nikki Giovanni
