One man's philosophy
BY CHANCE OF BIRTH
I was born here, my skin is dark,
had it been there, where skins are
light, perhaps I'd be white.
God planted me in Catholic country;
could have been in Mormon valley,
or some anti-Christain pathway.
I speak Spanish(English,Chinese...)
language too by circumstance.
Did I select it in advance?
Was it my choice to be this sex, this
time, progressing in God's plan?
Or, by His direction, I'm a man?
By chance of birth,our earthly body,
and scene pre-set. But judgment true
-- not what we are, but what we do.

|Delma, there is a well of deep thought that springs forth from your poem, filled into a jug of artistic design, there is an inscription on that jug that reads, beware. do not overwater your prejudices. You always say so much in your poetic formations, enjoyed truly!
Thank you! and may whichever God bless you! Jasmin Horst
