    Life - Journey - Integrate

    Life is but a journey
    That everyone must take
    This role is universal
    No matter what your race…

    I often times think about this and wonder, why is there so much hate. Aren’t we all here for basically the same purpose.. to grow and thrive and learn.. Do we not all have a heart? Do we not all have the same blood running through our veins? Do we not all have the same ending, when our heart stops its’ beat? Why then, does the color of our skin make us so different? It shouldn’t. Did we not all come from one creator? I don’t remember reading, anywhere, that there is a different God for every race – I believe it has been said and taught that God is the God for All!

    It is true that there are different paths along this journey – some may be rougher than others, yet, do we not seek after the same goals? Love.. peace.. serenity.. happiness.. family.. a home to live in.. a car to drive.. food to sustain us.. do these things at all sound familiar? Do they differ from race to race? I don’t believe they differ, I believe we all seek these same things.. so why then does one race feel they have superiority over the other just because of the color of their skin.. do you not see so many of those same individuals filling up the tanning booths to get variation to their tones.. for the light to get dark.. they see the beauty of our color, but they fail to see the beauty of our soul..

    Its time to…
    Look beyond my outer layer
    Look into my inner core
    See the similarities
    Within each individuality
    Take to heart what God’s created
    His plan was perfect, don’t you know
    Look around and tell me
    Is it just “one” color that you see
    Each shade and variation
    Each color light and dark
    There is beauty in this integration
    With separation – each are dull if kept apart
    For us
    Its time to come together
    To fully integrate
    To see the beauty of every shade
    Let’s become “the” human race

    Thank you $$RICH$$

    Thank you for your welcome!!! I have returned actually to my newly found home.
    I posted years ago.. actually quite a few years ago.. and haven't written for a good
    2 1/2 years - I decided I needed to get myself back into the flow of things...
