When God made you
He had to create a new hue,
for no where on earth
did there exist another soul
with such a lofty goal
as the one you openly embrace...
to love each being
unconditionally...
To gift each being
the freedom to BE.
To gift each Justice, Equality.

There are many well-meaning souls
steadfastly offering some or all
of these rights equally to some,
but not all,
inscribing upon their hearts
the names of the select few
whom they would gift
these powerful rights,
sometimes basing the gifting
upon national heritage,
sometimes religion
(or the lack therof),
but always upon the absurd notion
that God favors one sparrow
more than the other.

Yes, God had to create
a brand new hue
to color in the likes of you.






May ripples of LOVE
become waves of PEACE

(big hugggsssssss) Oh Kacy, this is so very true, it does seem that way, yet I know He has painted us all special colors, colors of freedom of speech and opinion, so we can speak and have our voices heard in hoping some odd ends can be fixed and we don't all fade into obscurity! (sigh) This is marvelous, sweet friend, this has my vote, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Kacy, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

That may just be the best line you ever wrote!

Thank you dear Noah. You always offer unconditional friendship and love to others.

Duncan, can I hug you through the screen?
I am really glad you liked that line.

my goodness...such a lovely poetic declaration. Someone inspired a new shade of love in your pen

" ... And think not, that you can direct the course of love ...
if it finds you worthy ...  it then directs your course."

Excellent poem. Thank your for the reminder that each of us are unique and special, and that God never favors one sparrow above another.

Blessings,

Yes, Kacy....
God made each of us differently....and he
loves all of his creation.
Very good book submission, friend....

I like this perspective...And I notice that you've been about color of late.
