Humanity

We are who we are  

 

 

But we are still all human


No matter how vast the world we live in


No matter how near or how far


We are where we are


We are all human


No matter the hue of our skin


We are all human

 

We are not all men


But we are all human


No matter the nationality or origin


We are all human


No matter how thick or how thin


We are all human


No matter how great our sins


We are all human


No matter faith


Or what we believe in


We are all human


We do not love or hate the same things


But we are all human


No matter how strong the convictions


Nation against nation or between simple citizens


We are all human


No matter the civil


Or social unrest that has risen


We are all human


No matter the wars we wage


No matter the battles we win


No matter the violence that's made


In the end it's humans both sides are burying


Human life lost that both sides are mourning

 

The weight of human life in the caskets they're carrying

 

But both sides are still human


One thing we all have in common


Times not our friend

 

It is and should be our only end


But…

 

In the news


I only hear about humans ending humans


Why is it that I see violence  

Why is it that when I look around


I see humans


 

But…

 

Little humanity
