We Are the Same - March 18, 2024

during tragedies

and acts of courage

we are the same


with stupid mistakes

and gestures of compassion

we are the same


despite the color of skin  

job   intelligence or beliefs

we are the same


that everyone’s hope and desire

for themselves and family

are the same


for the billions you’ll never meet

living your life in different clothes

houses    laws   religions and countries


we are the same


travel this country

then the world

tell me what you see . . .
