For America to Rise

For America to rise
to be more than a superpower
our military might
our ability to change the world

We must Love our neighbor
all are God’s children
the second command of God
after the command to
love God completely

We have lost our way
nothing that joins us
only divisions, factions,
them versus us

We have found ways
to divide our neighbors
Fox and MSNBC
Republican and Democrats
endless echo chambers

To love our neighbors
as we love ourselves
How we should treat
our fellow man

We are no better
than any other
though we seek
to divide, to separate,
by judging our neighbor

How can we divide
separating people
all of us neighbors
under the skin

We all are fallen
we all have the same stain
all of us sin, turn away,
We all deserved death
but Christ climbed our cross

We must Love our neighbor
as God commands us
ignoring the differences
finding common ground
