If God loves everyone,
Why must you follow this proclamation with “except…”
To exclude one group or another?
There are no exceptions for those who accept God into their hearts.
Christian or Muslim, it does not matter;
We are all children of the same God.
We enter and leave this world the same way,
So why do we disagree?
So what if a woman is born into poverty?
She has the Lord in her heart.
With the Lord by her side,
She is free from greed and the demons of wealth.
