In Love with Love

27 Oct

Today i woke up white

pale skin set my site

but what if i woke up black

would my future be set back?

Today i woke up white

no nazi’s were in sight

but what if i went to shul

would a fate of mine be cruel?

Today i woke up white

headlines filled with fright

red heart is broken two

isn’t all human blood blue?

Today i woke up white

fists up ready to fight

hate is not the hue

can’t fight war for peace

can you?

Reflections of love as my heart wrestles with the hate spewed out, in word and action, around the world this past month, even just today. The lower case “i” symbolically used.

From discussion, to introspection, to action. Heart aching with the “other.”
