Man chooses to divide himself into what he calls classes
you know that technical term,
“social status” is how we categorize the masses.
Oh it seems that we are afflicted with this addiction,
we a prone to this infection of social division.
We are also conditioned day by day
being programmed by the way
by what the media may say
about race and religion
culture and creeds
defining our position
by what we drive down the street.
We are constantly under the scrutiny of
other people’s thoughts
other people’s values
other people’s snot.
All of it is rooted in the over love of self
so much love is directed inwardly
that there is none left over for someone else.
It’s a battle over resources
a struggle over stuff
And while we strain to attain for all that we aim
it never is enough.
They say that to divide and conquer
is the strategy of war
it is in the persistent pursuit of glory and loot
that we find the motive of what we fight for
There once was a sage named Solomon
who said that riches surely grow themselves wings
and being thankful for what you have
is wiser than lusting for other things.
There once was a man named Jesus
and maybe He said it best
saying that if you seek heaven and righteousness
you would be truly blessed with all the rest.
Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find
knock and the door will be opened
for God is good to all mankind.
Love God with all your being
love your neighbor as yourself.
I think it’s time we start agreeing
to put division on the shelf.
