Your Children

I have to admit it’s true
I hope it’s not true of you
I have a tendency
To lack the decency
Of giving each person their due

I have been quilty for years
Of giving a label from fear
If someone is different
I get defiant
And judge them from what I can see

Lord, help me to have compassion
To all who I have interaction
Let me see their heart
And know that they are
A child of yours just as I am
