How are we so "different"?
If "different" is just a thing.
If we all have certain features,
What does "different" bring?
People filled with hatred,
Can't possibly see,
That there's not really "differences"
Between you and me.
Looks can't show "difference",
If they're just there to be seen.
If you don't look like someone else,
Why are they so mean?
If being "different" is what is wrong,
I'd rather not be right.
And I'd want to finish living,
Doing the "different" fight.
A child from my son's middle school recently passed away suddenly. That's what the info sheet he brought home said. When asked about it I learned there are many rumors and speculations that he had committed suicide because of teasing and bullying. A few more questions brought about the fact that he was physically different than others. I am so sad about this.
Today I read a great post here, about her son's Jesus heart.
I think of my children, all of them different. A few with physical differences, a few with differences unseen. All in ONE FAMILY, there are seven people who are all different from each other. And you know what? God created every single one of us, and loves us all EQUALLY.
