Unity

Unity

Why do we walk
on different paths
in a world of sameness?
 
Choosing to separate
By culture and creed
Excusing it is shameless
 
Visibly different, but
skin and bone equal
Colors result of geography
 
Shapes and sizes
varying, and
down to demography
 
Heartbeat rhythms
And eyes that cry
Bones that will break
 
The differences minor
When all said and done
We all feel the ache
 
Blood the same color
Pumping and
yet unknown
 
Running through
Each other’s veins
A comfort zone
 
Color blindness
Should be our
only disability
 
A wedge driven
Between the cultures 
causing global volatility 
 
Embracing differences
Seeing the other side
Brings togetherness
 
Why do we walk
on different paths
in a world of sameness?

      We are strange creatures. Being unified is better for everyone, if only she would try 😢
