Prejudice

A mass of children
spin their threads
into a blind web
that drums with power
until
one 
voice
insists,
Think, people!
We 
are
not
the 
same
A combined prompt with picture from Magpie Tales
and words from The Sunday Whirl

No, we are not all the same.....thank goodness. What a dull old world it would be if we were all the same.

Yet more alike than we are different, under the various cultures and ideologies. Well said!

That is so true. If people would just think for themselves instead of going with all the media hype and scaremongering they would feel a lot better.

We need those that dare to walk the other way...

Mary said...

Indeed the words "Think, people" should be listened to & followed. Thinking seems to have gotten lost in the blind following.

Michelle said...

I like this very much!

Marilyn B said...

I love that voice that sets everything so clear!

Really like the photo and the words. Although we are each unique and individual, there are always points of similarity. I like that voice that calls us to think,

Berowne said...

Fine response to the prompt.

Jae Rose said...

It only takes a single brave voice to tilt the pendulum - i am always grateful when that voice emerges and sniffles things up a little...equilibrium can be dull - and i love the photo too!

Jae Rose said...

By which i mean shuffles- not sniffles!

Gail said...

Jae Rose, Berowne, Dee Dee, Sumana Roy...Thank you.
