No Less Nor More

No Less Nor More

We are no less nor more human today
With no less nor more potential
To hate or be kind.

We have no less nor more duty today
Bound by no less nor more responsibility
To love and set free.

Nothing real has changed,
So do not allow yourself to be changed
No more nor less.

Nothing real has changed
So do not allow yourself to be defined
No more nor less.

Nothing real has changed
Do not forget who you are and have always been
A child of God
A human being
An American Citizen
Beloved
No more nor less.

We have no less nor more duty today
Bound by no less nor more responsibility
To love and set free.

We are no less nor more human today,
With no less nor more potential
To hate or be kind.
