Prayer to Feel Unity

When I look at the people who stream by me in the city today,
I do not see my people.
I see the other, the foreigner, the stranger, the unknown, the barbarian.
I know that this is not right, and still I find I am doing it.
How will I escape my trap of exclusion, Holy Ones?
How will I learn who my tribe is?
How will I come to know that my family is passing before me,
and I stand by, not only not knowing, but actually preventing that knowledge from coming to my mind?
I pray to you, you who are the parents of this family of which I am a part:
open my eyes, open my ears, open my mind, open my heart to all the relatives that surround me.
