One

When I close my eyes,
Standing in the shower,
The warmth of the water wrapped around me,
I am not white.

I am not male.
I am not hairy.
I am not slightly overweight.

I am not a father, husband, son, or brother.
I am not a Democrat, a liberal or progressive.
I am not a Christian.
I am not educated.
I am not 40 something.

I am. Only.
Just like the one who created me.

Like you.
Like your neighbor.
Like the outcast, the other and my enemy.

I am.
