We look for difference
Superiority is ego’s way
To set us apart
Superficialities–race, creed, color
Used to denigrate
Peel away what your eyes can see
Open your closed mind
What rushes forth from this cauldron
Blood, flesh, tears, soul
Crying to be understood
Begging to be seen as the mirror sees you
So simple to put in a simple word
Yet one that rarely escapes the lips
Said in passion
Said to our spouses
Said to our children
But one seldom shared with strangers

If only the world would hear this persona’s voice! Great one.
Thank you my friend, if only, the world would be a much better place.
I “love” you, Dom!
Well thank you, it’s so nice to be “loved”. 🙂
There is the flip side of that too though Dom; so many people say it falsely to fulfill selfish needs with no thought to the hurt they cause to the people whose returned love is genuine. We need more genuine heart, soul and Love for all of our fellow humans.
You write beautifully 🙂 Kyla
I do agree with you, we do need more genuine heart, soul and love for our fellow humans. If we did, this world would be a much better place. I suppose then that we will each have to do our part one person at a time to make it better. Thank you for the thoughtful comment Kyla, I very much appreciate it. 🙂
You’re welcome and thank you Dom 😊
