I do not care what is your creed
I do not care what you believe
I’ve always thought that we can be
respect in spite of disagree

I love my muslimsisterbrothers
I loverespectdefend them & others
I can no longer be obliged
to be deceived and ill-advised

I know we’ve made mistakes so many
I know that hate’s a gut response
I’ve always thought that we can find
a way in spite of history’s twined

I know it may have been naïve
I know that no one really listens
I’ve always thought that we can fight
off hate in spite of breach of right

I love my muslimsisterbrothers
I loverespectdefend them & others
I can no longer be obliged
to be deceived and ill-advised

I see that no one asks those questions
I see that no one cares to look
I’ve always hoped that we can lay
our sword in spite of power’s play

I blame our leaders, bankers, bigots,
I blame the greedy, rich and full
I may be small to start a racket
but may in spite we all attack it?

I love my muslimsisterbrothers
I love my christiansisterbrothers
I love my hindusisterbrothers
I love my jewishsisterbrothers
I love my buddhistsisterbrothers
I love my atheistsisterbrothers

I loverespectdefend them & others

      • I wish the politicians would know history, world religion. More Muslims in Africa than any part of our world. They live in peace and bother no-one.

      • I agree, but there are some conflicts (Sudan, Somalia, Mali etc) but if people would look at history as you say – and by looking at history I mean, not the falsified versions – then things would start to look completely different.

      • Africa had hard times. But they do not attack Europe, Asia and the America. They lived with heat, hunger and struggle. I went to Africa twice on food, water and medicine missions for President Clinton. Our gift of kindness open doors to friendship and hope.

      • USA is struggling too. Half population on welfare. So many mass murderings being done and a desperate USA. I hope for better days. World need to stop and re-start with proper goals.

      • Oh so true…right now with these time trying to voice other opinions has become harder and harder but is so essential! Thank you for the time you took to read so many of my poems!

  1. I often say something about faith being in all directions and among many diverse people’s countries. It is truly the Heart that matters. Peace and love comes from compassion and inclusion, Eva. You expressed this beautifully. ♡♡

      • I am happy we stay connected, Eva. ♡♡You show beauty and light through your words and art. Did you happen to see I posted “There is Peace in Trees” and a “Unity” poem with branches of trees reaching towards each other? 🙂 they were pretty photos and I am trying to use a poetic post. Happy holidays, however you follow your faith. ☆

      • Yes, beautiful, Robin, I am happy too, to stay connected if I lived near you I probably would say: Common let’s meet for a coffee! Wishing you a peaceful time and happy celebrations with your family too…oh and BTW…my Christmas tree is up 😉

  2. Was thinking about you lately…then you kindly appear! Can’t go chasing after people like I used to (getting old????). Respect and love is how I feel toward Muslims even if I vastly disagree with their god or their methods of “getting along”. This poem says what I would like to have said. Thank you for posting it and visiting my humble blog abode PEACE—Jonathan.

    • Thanks Jonathan kind as always… I am really glad about your comment…see I have worked with muslims, I have muslim friends and my other half is muslim too..I know that no muslim is the same as the other just as much as no christian is the same as the other…no atheist is the same as the other – for me it doesn’t count. It is what we have to show for ourselves, our acts, that count. Thank you!
