I know people
in distant lands that I’ve never been,
that I’ve never met in person
who speak languages that I don’t understand,
that are guided by religions that I’m unfamiliar with
and customs that are foreign to me,
but when I look beyond the veil of our differences
I can’t help but notice
our souls are one and the same
…and when you get right down to it,
that’s enough for me to love them
as I would my own family
We are Human
For that I am thankful.

Very uplifting, to say the least. I am reminded of a fine phrase I’ve heard another poet use–“third eye clarity”.
Thank you Iris. Yes, I’m very familiar with the third eye. 🙂
Thank you very much for the kind words Iris.
