I thought God created us equal,
With bodies and biological realities,
With desires and sentiments,
With hunger and pain,
With senses and sensibilities,
Until the day I knew
We had a hierarchy!
Based on the languages we speak.
Based on yours and my English
And, we both used it to talk about God and Truth
I couldn’t even pronounce God, you said correcting my pronunciation
And, said My God, and your God is same,
But you forgot to highlight the differences,
With clouds of hypocrisies over your head,
And, you corrected my English~ so that I could talk like you
So that I could speak like you
So that I could learn your voice
To replace mine, to forget mine!
And, yet you talked about God,
And, how humans are equal,
and, you think you and I are equal…
