Abrahamic Promise

The Orthodox Jew embraces the Palestinian, Arab, and Gentile

All of them finally recognize their brotherly lineage

In the desert, they can trace their

Ancestry to the One who was called to leave

Everything behind to start a long journey

Ecumenical, interfaith, religious pluralism, mixed marriages

Interracial, biracial, biracialism, two-religion families,

Mix-raced, multiracial, multifaith are modern coinage

They are discovery terms and expressions that bring us

Closer to the fulfillment of the long-awaited promise

Of brotherhood, harmony, and union. One we are indeed!

Farewell to the hypocrisy of the past social contracts

Farewell to the anti-miscegenation laws which

Favored only one group who called the shots

Yet, covert or exploited interracial unions begat

Biracial offspring even to the Founders of this nation

Farewell to Jim Crow and all evil systems oppressing

A man’s own blood and family. Call him a deadbeat dad!

It’s not time to save face and social position any longer

The scattered children are tired of living in the shadows

The Israelis break the bread of peace with

Their Palestinian and Arab brothers. Then they share the same tent

Of reconciliation and complete brotherhood.

Oh Jerusalem, let the angel of peace stop the bloodbath and unite your children!

Let them realize what matters most as both groups

Are not foreign to suffering and tribulations

The museum of Tolerance presents powerful shows

Of the holocaust and past struggles of African-Americans

The pictures of Iraqi, Rwandan genocide victims and

Palestinian militants are archived in newsrooms database

Let the non-Jew have his bar mitzvah at the temple

His Muslim interracial parents will appreciate the gesture

After all, it’s a rite of passage just like Quinceaneras

In the Hispanic culture

We have Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa,

And many ethnic, religious celebrations in the Valley

The Americans will wait for their Russian, Vietnamese

Or South American brides in the true practices of

Democracy, freedom of choice and association

Love can’t ever be regulated any longer.

The Asian grooms will cherish their English brides

The Africans will freely pick their European sweethearts

The Indian immigrants will abolish all old-country

Divisive systems. Only America guarantees such a melting pot!

Differences of skin tone, facial features, wealth, and language

Should not matter any longer

We are all sons and daughters of Adam and Eve (Acts 17:26)

For we were alike before we were different

From the dirt we all came; to it we shall return some day

Then, the floods wiped out everyone

The gene pool was narrowed back down to Noah’s family

The same human blood is running through our veins

Moses married an Ethiopian woman

His brother and sister, Aaron and Miriam, spoke

Against him. They found displeasure in his union

Miriam’s skin was attacked with leprosy for 7 days

For her sharp tongue and criticism (Num.12:1-15)

Bringing diverse people together found approval

After all, we are all one human family, with one father and many siblings
