Intended To Be! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

will we answer the call
to finally be fully human?
to lay aside our religious
and political differences?

to treat each other with
conscious and willing respect....
to finally see and understand
the beauty of diversity?

to become aware of the dependence
that we have on each other?
to understand that God, under any name,
works through the minds and bodies of humans....

to wake up and see that our Mother Earth
is dying, by our own hands!
to finally realize that life is not ownership,
but a gift we have to give to receive....

to understand that economic disparity
has nothing to do with a human being's worth!
and just for a moment, to lay down
our guns, our hatreds, and our fears....

becoming the prayer we were intended to be!
