United, We Stand
May we stand together in gentle harmony;
As members of the human race,
It’s time to abandon our mental armory,
Amidst this crisis that we face.
With 99.9% genetic similarity,
It’s absurd that we still ostracize;
With our pathetic insularity,
That we can’t seem to compromise.
We’re divided by ethnicity,
And ripped apart by races;
With no sign of our complicity,
But the color of our faces.
We’re divided in our politics,
Pitted as enemies against our brothers;
Instead of embracing similarities,
We see a disparity between each other.
We’re divided in our religion,
As we fight to find the righteous way;
We’re guided to a great division,
Instead of uniting together to pray.
We’re even divided within churches,
With 100 different denominations,
Only noticing their smirches,
To deny their congregation.
What if all the gods we worship
Were actually one in the same?
The same commander of each warship,
But called by a different name?
It’s a shame that we stay segregated,
Divided by perceptual differences;
Instead of becoming educated,
To make intellectual inferences.
If we decide to override our pride,
And stop relying on our prejudice,
We could begin to see the other side
To be a little less incredulous.
And if we decide to stand as one
Instead of separating in two...
The possibilities are infinite,
There's nothing we can't do!
