If we don’t feel with our hearts, we don’t belong
If we don’t see as one, the world is wrong
Beyond the wars and the hate and the insanity
We are all connected as humanity
We are the child with cancer who still wears a smile
We are the kid from the projects facing trial
We are the pregnant teen feeling lost and used
We are the elderly man in a home abused
We are the young couple, marriage on the rocks
We are the homeless one in a cardboard box
We are the cold and hungry, sad and depressed
We are the lonely child who never felt blessed
We are the woman whose life was filled with pain
We are the man standing alone in the pouring rain
We are the child who struggles day to day
We are the teenage girl who ran away
We are the soldier killed in an unjust war
We are the young man who can dream no more
We are the inmate locked away for life
We are the old man who has lost his wife
We would be better off without our vanity
And have a sense of belonging to humanity.

    I really enjoyed reading this poem. I love the use of the phrase we are before each line as it makes you realize we all suffer and in that we are all the same. Any one of us could end up (or could have ended up) in any of those sad situation. I just joined this site yesterday and so far this is one of my favorite reads. Great job

    great poem...makes you think what the world could be like if we all connected to each other just a little more...if we all saw each other as part of ourselves, would we be in the situations we are today?

    Vince, I read this and remember you as you are full of juice and a vision for humanity. I cannot read this poem without missing you ... you have not written here in awhile, my friend, and when you are silent it seems all the good old time is gone. Happy new year!
