Belonging

belonging
We have a strong need
to belong, to be accepted
loved, part of a group.
We dress alike, speak
the same jargon
create rituals together
profess to believe the same things
yet even with all of this
we sometimes feel alone
in a world we do not understand.

There are no chosen people
no religion is the only answer
no person better than another.
Saint and sinner are we all
just doing the best we can
even when our best is not very good.

Yet though housed in a human body
with all the frailties of mankind
there is within each of us
a soul created by our Creator
capable of becoming pure love.
It is our soul which
defines who we are
as we unfold into
all that we are meant to be.
