Poetry Rhythms

The All in All
A mirror that contains reflections
of All that exists
Broken to pieces, each alone
reflecting its piece of the All
The All reflecting in the other

The All once said we were
made in his image
The image a vast one
reflects Asian, Caucasian,
African, and Aborigine
All the natives of the earth

Reflections wear nothing at birth
joining the tribe we divide
into suits, feathers, silk,
and leather shouting we and you
Blocking our reflections
Deflecting the others

Break from the tribe
shout your I
being true to your reflection of 
the All in you
We are here to reflect 
the All in All in you and I
Susan Raza 1997
