Why Can't We Be Love

Why can't we be love
Beloved
It's harder to hate
With chains and heavy weight
And anger that separates
Rather than love undefined
No barriers of any kind
No mountains to climb
Only love to unbind
We push innocence down
Condemning like we understand
When we don't have the first clue
As to what they may be going through
We cast an image, a people as wrong
Because they don't resemble tradition
A little different than before
With looks a little different
With color a little different
With identity a little different
Oriented in a little different way
God's perfect Children
With love a little different
Can we accept to accept
Once and for all
Can we expect to accept
From now and for all
Let the message be heard
Jesus is alive in His World
The Word comes to life
Thank You Christ for Your Sacrifice.

    An insightful piece.... a vivid reminder that all people, races and traditions are manifestations of God which we must learn to appreciate-not hate.
