We Are the Same

We are all born

There is no real divide

And once we are dead,

It’s the same that we have died

 

We all breathe air

And live on the same Earth

We all experience cycles

And rejoice in our emotional rebirth

 

We all learn to notice difference

Instead of what is the same

We are raised to feel unique

And our ego is to blame

 

We attach to the ego

Our scars are earned

When we separate from the ego

This is a smart lesson learned

 

We forget that we are all human

And racial divide earns keep

We forget that we are the same

And for this, I weep
