    I did not ask your friendship,
    You did not ask for mine.
    We simply fail to see it,
    To read between the lines.

    What common goal has caused us,
    In common cause to be bound
    In adherance to the truth and coming
    From where this truth is found?

    Did Creator make a mistake when
    my people were fashioned so?
    Was suprise there written upon It's Face,
    In ignorance did It not Know...

    The propensity of these people whole,
    To destroy in bounding hate
    Those who brought It's Face to view-
    Was this to be our fate?

    And when and where does that leave me?
    Trapped in history and in skin.
    I pray to my Creator come
    And fashion us again.

    Nice write....the passion and sincerity is palpable.

    Yes, I agree that it will only end when the Creator comes again.

    2 Peter 3:13
    But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.

    Common goals, common causes.

    I like it. I love the rhythm, close to iambic pentameter. You are a writer.

    I admire your honesty.
    Great write.
