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?

Humans are beautiful. I love this a lot.

I've been victim of bigotry through religion as well as race. Despite so many people giving me looks of disbelief since I'm white, very pale even, but yes I've been discriminated against because I'm white. There is no reason we are better than anyone else because of class rank, colour of our skin, religion, sexuality, weight, or even height. Humans are beautifully imperfect it's why we are amazing. There's no reason to be a bigot it just makes you an ugly person.

Because nobody wants to be told they're wrong in any way. Instead of believing in your own opinion and keeping it that way, people try to force feed it to others. I call it sin. I love the message because it's so true :)

There's physchological and cultural differences based on race and gender.

I think you meant to say physiological...physchological is not a word...but you've obviously completely missed the point of her poem. From my understanding, she's not referring to how we physically appear, but rather how all of us are essentially the same on the INSIDE. We are all HUMAN!!! (Listen to the song Human by Daughter and maybe you'll understand)

Again. Being human, and showing basic curtsey to your fellow humans is all this is meant to say.

So the way you choose to show curtsey is to insist that because YOU don't see it, this isn't right.

If that was the point you wanted to do, there is a billion better ways to say it. What you just said is; "Everyone is the same, no matter where they came from culturally, or how they grew up."

Which isn't right.

You defend it by saying "What I meant to say was: Blablabla."

Doesn't matter what you -meant- to say. In art, it's what you're -saying- that matters.

In art what you say IS what matters but I cannot help anyone's interpretation. If your interpretation is negative, then I cannot help you or change your mind, no matter how I explain it. If you have a negative viewpoint in life then your artistic impression will be negative as well. 

I understand that this is an art website and you are free to express your opinion but there is no need to be rude or offensive. You didn't understand the poem. 'Nuff said.

I understood it. It quite explicitly stated: "Everyone is the same."

That wasn't what you were trying to say, so it's a bit silly that is what you said.

Yes. Everyone is the same. We are all human. You clearly didn't understand it. Let it go, you aren't going to change my mind and I am not going to change yours. Stalemate. Move on with your life.

 Sadly this is something that many people will never understand. There are parents that teach their children to be racist, to hate people who are not of the same religion, and when they will become parents they will do the same. 
 I can proudly say that I got an education without racism, hate for other religions and so on. Ok, that can be maybe because I am a quarter gipsy, a quarter jewish (which is my hungarian part) and the rest romanian so diversity is not a problem in my blood. And to not talk about the 2 religions. But anyway, lets get back to the subject. I don't think that humanity will ever get rid of this sickness. Its way to deep inside our DNA. First we need to stop all forms of hatred, and just then we can stop searching for differences and look at the many things we are the same. Because the differences are just a pretext to hate.

Yes. This is perfect. I truly wish more people could be open minded enough to fully understand we are all the same. Not that we all have the same dreams, aspirations and hardships, but that we are all essentially the same thing, so stop fighting about who's right about what and rather just help eachother understand one another.
