Allah

Stand in your otherness
The colour of your skin, the roots of your religion
The balance of your possessions, the heritage of your people

Stand and embrace your differences but discard your divisions
See your existence and your universe for all its multiplicity
But discern its unity, its Oneness

Embrace it as parts of a whole,
Until the individualities dissolve
Into the completeness of its unification

And let your identity be not muslim or irish
White or even human
But simply an instrument of creation

And through every thought
Through every word and deed
Supplicate to Oneness

To the One
The Independent
The All-encompassing
