Who is my Neighbor?

(in Haiku)

Who is my neighbor
And am I a neighbor too?
God has called us all.

People who suffer
From domination’s power
Seek helpful neighbors.

A homeless man says
“Thanks for the food and pillow”
He knows his neighbor.

Oppressed refugees
Seek asylum and freedom
They are our neighbors.

An elder feels sad
Needs comfort and loving care
She is our neighbor.

Black, White and Yellow
From their ethnic groups, not mine
Each one, my neighbor.

People celebrate
They enjoy one another
Neighbor to neighbor.

-Bernice King, SNDdeN
