BROTHER AND SISTER COLORS

Oh flesh of many colors,
brothers all are we,
placing the Holy Spirit
above us on our knees.

No matter what we’re labeled
by those who sell a grace,
when names and slogans start to fly,
be calm and hold your place.

A yearning, kindly human heart
is only satisfied
through service to our Father,
not willful selfish pride.

Attitudes need adjustment
for loving, patient deeds:
objective understanding
not subjective, deceiving creed.

Oh flesh of many colors,
sisters all are we.
Beyond the ego, church, and flag,
the truth becomes a plea.
