Analysis of Polyvalence



Multifaceted people
display polyvalence.

They regard many values,
giving a reverence.

They unfold many layers,
drawing a confluence.

They embrace many cultures,
bidding a deference.

They respect many races
joining coalescence.

They admire many choices
aiding a concurrence.

They redeem many meanings,
choosing a preference.

They engage many colors
showing a convergence.

They accept many faces,
making a difference.
