Newton’s Law of Gravitation and Acceleration due to gravity

According to Newton’s law, force produce acceleration, this acceleration depends on the mass, larger the mass lower will be the acceleration. But in the case of Earth’s gravity, acceleration is the same for every object.why?(forget equations for a moment and the conceptually)

(Asked Hamid Khan )

” the force with which the earth pulls a body towards it is equal to the weight of the body (mg), so heavy objects are pulled by greater force and lighter one with small.. so acceleration is same.”
