A Prayer

Allow me to stand not above my fellows, but among.
To not stand below.
We are one, one and all.
We are Men and Women and non Binary.
Gay and Straight. We are many.
We are Iraqi and Israeli.
We are American and African.
We are Muslim and Christian and Atheist.
We are Jewish and Buddhist.
We are many. We are one.
Let us not kill one another.
Let us not hate.
Let us not think “I am right
and you are wrong.”
Let us differ from one another.
Let us celebrate our differences.
Let us celebrate our sameness.
The color of your skin, and
the color of mine.
The language you speak
is as beautiful as mine.
We are faulted and we are perfect.
We are, human
Let us be together, not apart.
