the population of one

Why make an enemy of a daughter or a son? A sacrifice on the altar of your sacred opinion. Birthday wishes celebration, no more segregation. A fractured population, equals, less than one. Between the we and me There's no fences I can see. But the borders that are there secure identity. Do they serve a purpose, beyond history. After all the earth is a planet, Orbiting the sun And if it wasn't for the stars We'd think it was the only one, We can use the wind for power Harness the power of the sun. Then why cant we live together And harness the power of one.

Great philosophy but the greed of man supersedes the need of man. I particularly applaud the last stanza.
