Song Description

Urging understanding, love and mutual respect -- deeply held values of my own.

Story Behind the Song

Originally created to raise funds for a global charity (UNICEF related) ... I'm now being encouraged to create an entire album of Spoken Word pieces. But this particular message means a lot to me.


What difference?
What color do you happen to be?

What love do you happen to see?

What are the joys that set you free?
Red ... brown ... yellow ... black ... white ... all of it

Each has a place in the spectrum of light.
Different ages, different stages of the lives we each lead
Different genders, trans-genders, mind-benders - agreed!
Different incomes, different outlooks, different things we regret

Different languages and cultures, different jokes that fall flat

Different customs, different music ... difference is where it's at
When will we rise above our selves and learn to accept

Will we ever learn that it is right to respect?

Yes, it's true: it's easy to see ... Other

But what if we could see ourselves as actual Sister and Brother

So easily said, it sounds so pat
But we share just one planet ... you can't get around that.

What if we learn the value of the difference we each bring
Letting that difference divide us is not a good thing

If we accept each other's differences -- what difference would it make?

All the difference in the world - for everyone's sake.
