Those Like Us by Raymond A. Foss

We look in the mirror
in the face of our neighbor
for similarities, kinship
noting differences
that which sets us apart
forgetting all that is the same
that makes us one

From the perspective of God
the eyes of the creator
there is no black, no white,
no red, no yellow, no rich or poor
no male or female
all of us the same
each of us children
sheep that have gone astray

All of us called to the fold
to the arms of the shepherd
the lamb who atoned
for each of our sin
Called to the father
to his love and comfort
called to see our brothers, our sisters
in each stranger’s face
