    if i
    would really focus
    on improving myself
    without trying to see myself as better
    through faults i project on others
    downing my sisters and my brothers
    because they don't seem to be
    believing exactly like me

    if i
    would just reach out
    from my own cocoon
    and touch what others have
    without a preconceived condemnation
    looking truly objectively at their explanation
    even though they don't seem to be
    believing exactly like me

    come from the cocoon
    yes, as a worm
    and taste the knowledge leaves
    and grow and metamorphose
    not stay in the silken comforts
    woven to protect me until i developed and grew

    then i
    would really grow
    and come to be
    and possible see
    the me in them
    and the them in me

    moses could see it plainly
    jesus and muhammad too
    accepted as the great three by many
    though the ones who claim to follow them
    find it hard to break free
    and live locked in stereotypes
    and never ever see
    the beautiful soul the Creator created
    which is one for all humantiy

    " yaa ayyuhan naasut-
    taquu rab ba kumul-
    lathee khalaqakum
    min nafsin waahedah.....
    wat-taquul Allah allthee tasaaa aloona
    behee wal arhaam"

    "O you who believe
    reverence you Guardian Lord
    who created you all from one
    single essence or soul.....
    and fear Allah through whom
    you demand your mutual rights
    and honor the wombs
    that bore you."

    Majestic Qur'an (4:1)

    What I got from this was that the biggest and most effective changes that we can make, are in ourselves. I like your crafty style.
