Universal Equality
(10/11/2020)


I truly
believe
that everyone

regardless
of biological

social

intellectual

or spiritual
status

deserves
the same
treatment

the same
opportunity
as others
of their
kind

as others
not
of their
kind

that does
not mean
that fair play
is free
play

we can’t
sit on our asses
and expect
to be given
our divine
rights

nothing
earned
is nothing
deserved

I truly
believe

unfortunately
my sphere
of influence
does not include
all people

or even
a few

I can
only
alter the outcome
of my own
insignificant
life

me
equals
me

my only
path to God
is through
my soul

and once
I find God
I shall find
you all
as myself
