One People

We are one people
All deserve a chance in life
Regardless of race

The journey in life
Pondering the forgotten
Has not been crowning 

I believe in life
It’s a journey with purpose
Opportunities

We choose how we live
Responsible to the end
Life should end with love 

We celebrate peace
Remembering forgiveness
Embracing balance

"Life should end with love" (nice line) as it began with love! I know what you mean; we are trying to convey pretty much the same concept. I firmly believe that common people understand the elementary principle behind any faith: LOVE. It's the marriage between Politics and Religion, between Priest and Politician that keeps people apart. I like your idea. Thanks for steering me to this poem.
