You Are Loved

We are so particular

Fixing our hair every day

We could hardly be seen

Looking half done this way

We select our clothes carefully

Sometimes the night before

Planned often days ahead

Sometimes even more

Yet while we are spending

Our time looking at us

What are we overlooking

Making our intentions unjust

If our hearts were as beautiful

As our faces and hair

We would never judge another

Yes, let’s start there

We look down upon others

While smiling in their face

Saying I do not judge anyone

Yet cursing their race

We impose our belief system

Upon others in our way

Saying it is as I tell you

No matter what you may say

We have railroaded people

Locked them in chains

Yet criticize them when

Only anger remains

We watch our women be abused

Our children being assaulted

But why even get involved

It’s not our fault…is it

Not our fault…really?

How did this thought transpire

Like watching people burning

While we walk right past the fire

If you care about self

As we all have tendency to do

While casting aside others

Who deserve the same things too

We are failing to reach High

Not doing what we should

Always talking about how we can’t

Knowing full well that we could

Acting like loving is a punishment

For a spiritual crime

Thinking not of our brothers

Because we are still stuck on “mine”

When we can not see the forest

Because of those worthless trees

We no longer must wonder why

Our garden is full of weeds

For while you may have success

Money, fame and things

You will become a victim of ego

And the punishment that brings

For ego is not real, however

When we create it within

We have edged away God

The only TRUE sin

For you are not greater or wiser

Than anyone or anything here

You have, in fact, lost focus

So you will live in real fear

Fear that one day someone

Will see you for who you are

Not an angel of truth

But a faint falling star

So start today, it’s so easy

Reach out for a hand to shake

Start loving all that

He did create

And at the end of the day

Give thanks for those touched

So you may be reminded why

You are loved so much
