People

One thing.
One thought.
One idea.

I am not a poet
But I know what
I really need.

People.

I need to believe
That each of my actions
Impacts people.

People.

I need to believe
That each of their actions
Impacts me.

People
Are united.

Not one person.
Not a mass of humans.
Each person is an individual.

People.
I need to see a group of people
As individuals.

Because people
Are powerful.

People
Are kind.

Each person
Is kind.
This is something I need
To believe in.

When something bad happens
I need to remember
People are just many individuals.

One person
May be cruel.
But people
Are kind.

This is what I need.
I need to believe
That people are good.

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
