We Too...

We too...
Need time to be reminded,
That people...
All don't think the same.
And we too...
Choose to dislike or to like,
Whatever comes to satisfy...
Our appetites.

We too...
Live in isolation.
And we do...
That which we believe.
And we too...
Follow what is taught,
From lessons that are sought.
To keep us separated, bigoted.
And divided.

We too...
Ride high on horses saddled.
And we too...
Look down on those with less.
And we choose...
To think we are better,
Than the ones homeless, hungry...
And in distress.

We too...
Have been blessed with life to live.
And we too...
Have only One Creator.
Who didn't from us one to pick...
Which created 'creatures',
Were favored as His wish.

We too...
Need time to be reminded of this!
