Only by breaking the links

Of racism and discrimination

Can we truly appreciate

The beauty of our fellow man

And finally accept

That we are but one people!

  1. I refuse to accept that I am the same species as Donald Trump! But I agree with with your sentiment. 😃

  2. But first we need to harness the love and only then may we break the chains. Love is like a garden filled with many flowers. It's all in the gathering of bouquets.

  3. I thought i'd commented on this one the first time I read it... clearly not. I must have meant to come back...and forgot.

    It's a beautiful poem Lynn... a sentiment I wish all humans could agree on.

    I loved Ropey's comment... nailed it!

    1. Thank you, Kimmie.....yes, Ropey's words ring most true, as his work is prone to do. I really enjoy his stuff :)
