We are not hens’ eggs, or bananas, or clothespins,
to be counted off by the dozen.
Down to the last detail we are all different.
Everyone has his own fingerprints.
Recognize and rejoice in that endless variety.
The white light of the divine purpose streams down from heaven
to be broken up by these human prisms
into all the colors of the rainbow.
Take your own color in the pattern
and be just that.
— Charles R. Brown
