I don't pledge allegiance to no flag.
I pledge allegiance to people who are important to me.
People of various origins.
People of different skin color and religion.
People of different orientation.
A big family of man/woman under one God, who became human.
Who taught us to be truthful
and to live humanely.
A lord of peace who defied the masters of war an death.
Who lay in a grave -
a symbol of all the hopes that people had to bury -
but rose from the dead,
that we can rise and show our true colors
where people value their origins,
their pride in their race,
I pledge alliance to people who try to do their best -
day by day -
to make this world a better place.
People who are not interested
in a particular religion,
but in spirituality.
The ultimate concerns of life.
The Living waters.
People united in their wish
to live in peace with their neighbors.
Show some Reverence of Life.
With them I share the hope
that we don't just pass our time -
somewhere, somehow -
but find true life and meaning.
With thanks to my dear tumblr friend @lancelane for his support and inspiration...
[Mmm! That was a donkey kick. Wow. This is quite the dish. And you know what guys do? And they stand up for people? That salsa verde, it's highlighting the ingredients. I'm getting the wine, I'm getting a little porcini.]
