I know some people said they really liked this so I thought I would post it here.

Without eyes to see
The color of your skin
Or knowledge of your nationality
Nor eyes to see the shape of your being
Or eyes to view your youthfulness or age
Or knowledge of your degrees or lack thereof
Or the knowledge of your religion
Or any other difference that creates prejudice
Here at Passionate Forums
We look within each other's soul
As we bare our inner being
In poetry and verse
Our hearts commune
Without the boundaries,
The fences eyes create
On which prejudice thrives
We communicate as God intended
Heart to heart
Spirit to spirit
One with God

I view each poet here
A star in the galaxy of love.

This was so pretty. It has to be in the book  !

One of my favorites. This could serve as life's motto in acceptance of all, regardless of age, color, creed or religion.
Very well written with a powerful message. Should be a keeper, for sure. Love, Marcy
