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
