#BLACKLIVESMATTER

By Catherine Davies


It takes different ears

to hear the world.

Different eyes

to see it.

Different hearts

to feel it.


It takes different hands

to make the world.

Different bodies

to walk it.

Different minds

to understand it.


It takes different talents

to change the world.

Different skills

to master it.

Different lives

to transform it.


It takes different faiths

to turn the world.

Different priorities

to order it.

Different leaders

to rule it.


But cut my hand,

I bleed the same as you.

Smother me,

I gasp for the same air.

Kill me, I fight

for the same life.


Love me, and I will smile

for the same reason.
