We Look For Difference

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
Silence religion
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
Love

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

  1. 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
