what makes you

What makes you so different
   the languages you speak
   the certificates you own
   the color of your skin
   the way you say hello?


What makes you so arrogant
   the places you’ve been to
   the faces you’ve seen
   the mouths you feed
   the asses you kiss?


What makes you so different,
   what gives you the right
   to feel superior to others
   and what makes you think
   you’re entitled to be mean to fellow
   human beings?

The sun gives way to the moon
and the green grass turns gray.

The answer lies beneath
for only the wise minds and kind hearts
to see.
