All the Wonders

The scientists say

We are more alike

Than we are different


Our genetic code

Shows that we all

Have the same mother

From whom we have descended


But

It is

The color of our skin

That has created

This world where

Those with black and brown skin

Struggle to exist


This world where

Those with black and brown skin

Are suspect


This world where

Those with black and brown skin

Fear for their lives

When they go about

Their daily business


God, you created us

More alike

Than we are different


Save us from ourselves

From our prejudice

Our injustice

Our fear


Save us

Transform us

Comfort us

And show us the way

To be your people

One people

Once again
