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.

      Thank you or your positive comment, Integrity, I hope others do read this and more than once. We all need to be reminded from time to time about our respect for others, even if their culture and beliefs may be different in some ways.

      Because we will be having new elections of a president and not only in America, but other nations around the world, I wrote this work to remind people that we are all. as one and brothers and sisters, united in human flesh. There are those who would spread the cancers of unrest and using race as an issue to cause their spoiling propositions.

      You truly have a way with words, Whonunuwho. This poem has a wonderful message. I especially love the last line-that He cares, and that is why our hearts beat as one. Voted up, and away, and I'm sharing this.

      Your use of the flower photos ties in well with the topic and gives the reader a greater understanding of how diversity works. Yes, if we hold hands through trials it will help us to bond. Beautiful.

      I wrote this work with the coming elections of world leaders in mind, and the importance of human caring, that is needed for our civilization to proceed in its development into the future.
