A Recognition of Unity

The world must come to a recognition of unity While struggling with a sense of separation Realizing that we are all genus human being With no reasonable excuse for alienation, Our arteries flow with the same blood of life Long accepting each other’s for transfusion, [Only good and evil are polarities of exactitude] Why must we contend with phony exclusion? We share the earth and all its magnificent riches For the good of all regardless of race or creed We must eschew thoughts of personal ownership Sharing with each other as each has the need. A sense of separation permeates our daily lives The ideas of “we” and “they” as entities diverse While in truth we and they are the exact same It’s just that we read different chapter and verse.

This is true "While in truth we and they are the exact same It’s just that we read different chapter and verse. " and it makes the poem end in the loveliest way!
