About the Poem

I often think of where we all are in the total scheme of life and feel sadness, then quickly attempt to convert it to hope.

To hear a voice cry in pain
not understanding.
To know the person inflicting the pain
loves deeply.

Why are two people torn apart?
Because of ignorance?
A programmed reaction?

Because of something as simple as skin color.
Such a reaction!
It has been so long.
Will we ever be one?
I hope so.
