The Tree Of We

 

 
A little of each of us  
runs through all of us  
 
Yet some chose or abuse  
what time has infused  
opting instead their  
ancestry refused
 
 
 
 
Not of my gender  
not of my faith.  
not of my country  
nor even my race  
 
connections much deeper  
than eyes ever see  
part of me you  
part of you me  
 
for DNA proves  
we all were the same  
long before thoughts  
gave each different names  
 
born of one woman  
the seed of one man  
scattered to dwell  
in far reaching lands  
 
and it can't but be known
their faces in scowl  
heads bowed in sorrow  
our actions so foul  
 
how to our kin  
the treatment we give  
love we have lost  
through time like a sieve  
 
Tears fill my eyes  
as these words do arrive  
for how can we ever  
feel we're alive.
