The Utopia of the modern world today
God undivided from the same lump of clay
Christians and Muslims, Ramadan at the table
The avenue to God, but a different label
 
To find the paradise is the golden key
To soar to the top is where we want to be
With Commandments and Pillars to upward climb
With knowledge and obedience the two combined
 
Bibles and Qur’ans, books by the same author
Of supreme intelligence, our certified counselor
The spirit we all seek by the name of God
We take to the heavens with our staff and rod
 
Allah, we adore thee, the highest of all
God, we adore thee, the highest of all
Different names but all the same spirit
When it appears, we come to revere it
 
Muslianity, Muslim and Christianity combined
Of faith, devotion, and spirit divine
There comes a heaven for those who seek
The paradise up above where the two shall meet
Allah and God of the undivided spirit
Take us to the holy and highest home

I was invited to a Ramadan feast and thought about writing this poem.

GodAllah, maybe? Could be a big problem like who comes first God or Allah? The clay was formed in the image of our Creator who we call by many different names. One name that combines all the different names of the Creator is indeed utopic. But the road to Ramadan and Christmas is a good start. Fork in the road almost always meet somewhere. Like. Hope this dream comes true. Thanks Robert.
