When and How ( a poem of inspiration)
When we, as a people, truly accept one another,
no matter our race, creed, or colors of our face.
We shall be a fine example, of this, our shared space,
our humanity, finest reflections, without disgrace.
Until we decide that all have a God given right,
Without insurrection, terrible disputes, non to fight,
Our society shall sparkle, all brightly glimmering,
Shinning forth for all to see, as the stars at night.
When a child from another country seeks to find,
a new home, in our own neighborhoods, as our own,
Then we welcome them with open arms, as a blessing,
in acceptance, smiling faces, made not to feel alone.
While other faiths, unlike ours, profess, to worship,
All to proclaim, and attend, in their own way,
Given fullest respect and justly revered, this to say,
Is our time of redemption, in such a loving day.
At public places, the mix of cultures, all unalike,
Yet are given room, that of their greatest free will,
Does proclaim our freedoms, written upon pages,
As we may each, and everyone, to read them, still.
This, our world, still spins about the warming sun,
As a moon lights our way at night and is so right,
We shall gather around a likened table, together,
Break bread, in brotherhood, share with all our might.
How this is done, forgetting ourselves, to think of others,
Remember that we all are related, as sisters and brothers,
Every mother's child has needs, just as if they're our own,
Given a part of this earthen soil, where we all belong.
