To You

I was going through my new friend’s blog and I found this wonderful piece.
i hope it speaks to you as deeply as it did to me.

And please check out her work, I promise you- you’ll be glad you stopped by…

To You 
my Muslim, Jewish, Gay, Black, and Brown
Brothers and Sisters
I will not hate You
Like a table piled high
with rancid meat
The bounty of the beast
I will not taste
the lies
I will not chew
the bigotry
I will not digest 
the hate
To you who society
tells me
I am better than
only not as worthy 
as my white brothers
