Everybody For

When we learn with others
Affirmatively to relate
We don’t see a “disorder”
But a character trait

Whether be industrious
Or what we think is lazy
We will not be tempted
To call each other “crazy”

Demanding that each single person
Act exactly just alike
Each other is an old idea
Taken has a healthy hike

What’s the diff’rence if somebody
Covers these inches of skin
Or covers those — how can that his
Or her real worth even begin

Determine in the gazing eyes
Brothers and good sisters of? —
Can only mean we are not gazing
From a place of love

But from some mean and twisted
System of priority
Holds mere ornamental
Habits, decoratively,

Accountable for value
Is in each of us unique —
Some know to build and fix,
Some know how to speak,

And some how to be silent —
‘Tis a special skill, you know,
To ever list’ning for the
Voices of the angels go

Some have minds mechanical
Their perfection in
And others have sweet sunny smiles
No one ever fails to win

Doesn’t matter if they’re good
At all the same things that you are
Life is not a competition
Love is not a war

Nor deservingness a measure —
Not a status symbol, bro
Not a bargain but a blessing
Everybody for, you know?
