One day a little girl looked up at the skies,
At a time there was a revived silence that filled the Earth,
She saw a cluster of stars,
In a plain dark sky and wondered why they clustered as they did…
And not shine like they should and sprinkle their silver dust
across the whole of the wide, wide skies?
She walked up to a playground nearby,
And sat on a swing, and went up and down,
thinking deeply, Why?
The seas in their rush to touch the shores,
Sprinkled the air with their salted breath,
And the choppy waters were calmed once more.
Just as the skies were divided that night,
the world below was in disarray.
There was chaos in the minds of the people of the Earth
over rights that they wronged each other.
The world was divided because I was of another faith,
color and race, and poverty and the rich became a race of their own.
They did not see the vastness of the empty skies and forgot
the right of life owned by all.
And so, the little grew up knowing that she belonged
to the cluster of stars who cherished a united race over riches, glory, and power.
So you see, there is so much to be done to unite the world just to belong.
Someday, perhaps the world below will learn the true meaning of You & I, and We & Us.
