Look past the obvious


Obvious signs; look past them,

Because they are just a cover.

Look past raceculture & nationality

Despise not others;

for in doing so, you’re

also despising yourself.

We usually want to go for what glitters

The saying says, “all that glitters is not gold.”

Indeed, there might be gold in glittering

But some glittering is fake and rubble.

Many have fallen into traps running for bling

Obvious signs can deceive

Obvious signs can  deceive

because they glare in our eyes

also, they can be so attractive

at times so repulsive.

Each raceculture & nationality

has positives & negatives

Ultimately  one is

identified by who

they truly are;

their character

and values

and how they treat others


       What we lose, from majoring on the outside appearance

By focusing on the outward we loose our quite a bunch

We prevent ourselves from learning from others, be it

culture,foods and even getting to know another language.

Also, we deprive ourselves of kindness to others,

by forgetting that we are all human,

created by God Each one is # UNIQUE

And God is the one that created different languages.


At times we despise the very person that could bring us help,

for God created us to work as families and communities.

two are better than one

Where one fails, one lifts the other

where one fails, the other one excels


When one is grieving the other one consoles

When one is lacking the other one provides what’s needed.

“No man is an island,” the saying goes


Love one another,

Do good to those that despisely use  you

Forgive one another

Help those that are in need

for it more blessed to give than to receive

give and it shall be given unto you

good measure,

pressed down

and shaken together

shall man give unto you

The Scriptures tell us
