We Are Equal.... - Poem by Vijaiya Ramkissoon

Don’t look down at me because I’m not like you,
In reality we are one and the same, this is true.

Don’t feel superior to me you don’t have that right
Because just as you are, I am a spark of divine light.

Material wealth and status don’t make you higher than me,
Character is what matters and the judge of mine, only God will be.

Don’t allow material objects to define who you are
For this won’t give happiness but rather, simply pleasure.

We will eventually die leaving our house, our clothes our car,
And after that, all we will carry is our good or bad karma.

We are all the same race the one race of humanity,
And our God is the same, the one God of divinity.

Credentials, connections and caste doesn’t matter in God’s eyes,
We are equally His children and none of us, does He despise.

If God loves every one of us, then who are we to hate,
We are born of Him, so harmony amongst all we should create.

We each have a purpose which we were born for,
So let us live solely for this and quit being at war.

In the wheel of life, we each have a role to play,
To sustain creation, every one contributes in some way..

So never let anyone make you feel they are more than you
For we are equal sparks of God, divine and true…

Bless! !
