The human mind loves

to create distinctions

and neat categories to

house these distinctions,

which are used to foster

differences and inequalities

and all the other ways of

holding people’s lives apart

and creating the ground of

conflict and the tragedy of

wars, poverty and exclusion.


But when one looks to the

sky there are no distinctions

between this way and that:

the sky is blue and then grey

with clouds and at night

the stars spread in their grand

beauty across the vast and

incomprehensible black.


There are no distinctions

between this person and that,

for in each there is uniqueness

and each lives under the sky

and looks up to the numberless

stars and wonders about life

and the preciousness of their

time on earth and their human skin.
