I really like this, "I choose to be salt; I choose to be light, -- I am a city set on a hill." Very nice poem stating the choice we have to make!

I spent a good, long time trying to understand your Title BEFORE I even got to the poem. However, the poem is brilliantly done, very meaningful, smoothly metered and packs a good message. A poem that leaves the reader really THINKING about the "Or, not the And". A great job on Topic, and a first class poet! Kudos!
