The Distance

the distance between us

is not measured in feet

no miles, no inches

can measure it

it’s not a matter of stripes

whether political

racial, religious or social

there is a gulf

either great or small

and it is created

neither by you nor I

by a land mass

oceans or the impassable

we are kept separate, brother

by an influence

we are kept separate, sister

by a confluence

their message

broadcast day and night

by every means possible

reminds all of us

of a manufactured

contrived difference

between us all

the distance between us

is small

the distance between us

is imaginary
