We Are One

by Barbara Evelyn

Black, white, Latina, Asian, African or Native American
We were all born members of the Human race.
Gentle, rough, hostile, kind
Rich, poor, needy, strong, adventurous, or mild.
We are all American and to this nation we belong.
What separates us in a crowd?
Our color, our hair, our noses, mouths, our eyes.
Why do our features our nature divide?
We are all living in American – you and me
Members of this vast nation’s citizenry.
Our parents, or their parents, may speak
French, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin, Navajo, Igbo
Swahili,  Zulu, Hindu, Latin, Portuguese, or Greek.
Whatever the language, our color, or our size
We must reach out a helping hand
To those whom others may criticize or despise.
If we support each other instead of divide
With healthcare, education, jobs and lifestyle
We may truly become “one nation under God” and survive.
