In the end what we learned
was not what you taught
even though you warned
we would lose your love

You thought to teach us
fear of what was different
but we studied the strange
and accepted them unto us

You gave us prejudices of those
whose skin held different shades
but we married all colors
because we saw inside

You wanted us to worship
money and all it carries
but we left the good jobs
that ate away our souls

Your god wanted huge buildings
and self-serving prayers
but we met the God who created
an universe unbounded

In the end we lost your love
as you told us we would
but like a cloud of blackbirds
we had flown away years ago
