Created In God's Image, Image Of Love And Compassion

Rating: 5.0
Why do you do what you do?

I am human, your brother, your sister
A mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, a friend
I am created in God's image, image of love and compassion
I care enough to wish me well
Do I care enough for a mask to wear?
Love thy neighbor as thyself, the bible says

Humanity cries, cries to sit next to one another
Humanity cries, cries to embrace one another
Any time you do, COVID may be among you
Invisible COVID walks with you, walks among us
Will you wear a mask? To save me, your brother your sister
A mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, a friend?

How dare you ask me to wear a mask
A mask I will not wear to infringe on my liberties
I have my rights; I have freedom of expression
A mask I will not wear to infringe on my liberties
I am created in God's image, image of love and compassion
To love thy neighbor as thyself, the bible says

I am human, your brother, your sister
A mother, father, grandmother grandfather, a friend
Created in God's image, image of love and compassion
A mask I will not wear to infringe on my liberties
Save your life, I will not, brother, sister, mother, father grandmother, grandfather, a friend

I am human created in God's image, image of love and compassion
Humanity must consult God. God must we wear masks?
God created us in his image, image of love and compassion
I, I will wear a mask to save you my brother, sister, mother,
Grandfather, grandmother, my friend.

Such is God's image, image of love and compassion
To love thy neighbor as thyself
POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
This poem was inspired by my difficulty in understanding why people who claim christianity as the foundation of their values and beliefs, refuse to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 transmission. The masks that can save lives of others. I find it ironic given the biblical saying " Love thy neighbor as thyself" . I struggle to reconcile these two extremes.
