We speak.
We breathe.
We eat.
We pray.
We stand.
We sit.
We sing.
We dance.
We bleed.
We hurt.
We cry.
We laugh.
We smile
We write.
We read.
We colour.
We draw.
We love.
We grieve.
We fight.
We argue.
We play.
We work.

We all live.
We all die.

So tell me again.
How does
race,
sexuality,
religion,
gender,
make us so different
from each other?
Because we are all part of the same world and the same truth. And we all need to leave something of value for our children. How about the words "We are one"?

I just had a heated debate with someone who is insisting that she is superior to most people because of her skin colour and status. *sigh* It feels pointless to try and convince someone like that, but I thought I would get it out at least in poem form. :P

EDIT: I think certain people are missing the point of this poem. It means that we all bleed red and before thinking you are superior to anyone, maybe you should consider the fact that if we all bleed red, then maybe all that should matter is the kind of person you are. Are you considerate? Are you kind? Are you gentle? Do you take care of your family? Do you live your life without hurting other people? Do you demonstrate through your actions, bravery, loyalty, curtsey, honour? THOSE are the qualities (amongst hundreds of other such qualities) you should consider another human being by. Not the colour of their skin. Not if they are a man or a woman. Not by their partner, whether they are gay, bi, trans, lesbian. Not if they are Muslim, Christian, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, Judaism.

As one of the comments below says, I am not saying we are clones, I am saying we are all one in being HUMAN. And that is how we should assess each other.

Sorry, just thought I would clear that up.

Precisely. What matters is what we do, what we think, how we treat others. Nothing else. All equal, all different, eh?

Thank you for this message. It seems like a lot of people these days can't understand this. We are all different in some ways, but deep inside we are all the same and should be treated equally. :heart:

This is amazing, it shows the unity between humans that we never see because of different personalities and different people :heart:
