Evening Thoughts

Strip away the bias,
Take away the labels,
That could be you.
Where would you turn,
If you lost it all?
Would you be happy,
To hear the words you said?

Listen to the words you speak,
Listen to the thoughts you think,
Would you smile if they were not yours,
Would you breathe easy as you listen,
Would you stand proud to receive them?

Is it fear of my neighbor
Or do I fear what I may do
If I were in their place?
