To Transcend Race, Color, and Creed
If we, as a civilization, could see beyond,
all the Races, the colors and creeds,
Then accept the human qualities of us all,
represented by faces and our needs.
Would we be a better people to present,
the spirit, the souls of mankind,
To progress, meeting challenges of our times,
all seeing, and none to be blind?
If we could draw from essences of each,
and not losing integrity and respect,
Could we then exceed the limits of our minds,
regarding all life and to connect?
The truth, a sincerity, the fabric of love,
a dedication and devoted to the same,
Would there ever to be fear and loathing again,
never leaving another to blame?
Holding hands and sharing in anguish and joy,
no better signs that we all do care,
The blessings and happiness all life has to give,
and in the good earth for all to share.
The spirit and substance of the human plight,
was meant in its creation to be, as one,
A merging of all kinds in the bowl of fine clay,
hand formed and then baked by the sun.
Did our God, the Creator, of all that there is,
intend us to be a low matter, and so opposed,
He, then to spin us upon the wheel of life,
adding not goodness, of which we are composed?
The human heart beats alike, in us each,
and we all feel the same fond joys and despairs,
We were meant to live and subsist in His light,
and the breath of life, His sign that He cares.
