Varying Views – a bop

We both share a common bond.
The colors of our skin do not discriminate.
It is universally important to us both,
Still, though, we differ. Your
Belief – faith – is in gradients of pink and red,
When I see yellow and gold.

Your God is my God, but he’s not the same.

The rage gives you power that it should not,
Encourages hate and oppression where
Tolerance and acceptance should be.
Your voice drowns the multitudes
Those that do not share your views
Are overshadowed by you.
They are incapable of disassociating with
Your large majority of racists and bigots.

Your God is my God, but he’s not the same.

There is no reprieve, no counter,
Still the human spirit fights on.
Their will to be heard, accepted as they are-
Gay, trans, Muslim, Buddhist, atheist, true Christian –
Your voice cannot be silenced,
But it can and will be ignored.

Your God is my God, but he’s not the same.

  1. Religions are causing a divide in this world. Although there are people like you who think differences should not come in the way, it does and everyone wants everybody else to believe that their GOD is the most supreme.
    Sad, but true.
