Immigrants~by rldubour

We Are The Same

If we were all different, life would not be the same
But, the truth is we are all different, indeed that’s all too plain
We fight, and kill each other, then try to pass the blame.
And there are those amongst us who blatantly thrive on pain.
There’s those that invoke bad feelings, what do they stand to gain?
Armies blindly follow egotistical maniac’s, someone, please explain.
Err it be conjecture, a positive discovery, or is it all too profane.
For it’s only looks, and feelings, that scientists can ordain
The 2 reasons we put ourselves under pressure, unnecessary strain.
So what is this discovery that to all human life can appertain?
Only Homo sapiens, out of 18 humanoid species, only we remain.
Joy and comfort seeking, should now and forever be our only aim.
We’ve got to learn to swim together, drown, it will be forever, all in vain!

What is it that connects all?
A tiny gene, so, so small
It is found in our DNA,
Listen carefully you’ll hear it say
“Were all the SAME”!!!!!

For some their freedom took a switch
Death by fire~ if thought one a witch!
The wilderness would soon give way
They came by thousands everyday.

Plantation owners took on slaves
For their freedom~ were early graves.
That was then and long in the past
Yet, prejudice just…

  1. Yes! 🙂 Not only are we all the same… we (including nature’s creatures) are each other.
