I am.
I am the all
the everything, the alpha
and the omega.
I am the Muslim,
the Christian.
the Hindu,
the Jew.
I am no one and
everyone.
I am home and
I belong.
I am love
and so I cannot
be stifled.
No order or ban can suppress me
nothing can take away
my humanity, no hate
no rage, no illegal
action or racial
epithet can erase me
I — we all
are
children of one divine
Creator.
We belong to the
earth and in the words of
a wise one,
we grow out of that
earth
thus
we are all one
family.
Love has no color
no citizenship, no race,
no creed, and no religion.
It is only fear that creates
separation, fear that
attempts to take
away our thusness
and the perfection that
we are. Let us remember
where we all came from
and stand together
in unity.
Let us be love.
And let us always
love.
