We are one (Be inspired today 272 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

If I have never met you,
If I may never meet you,
If I don’t know you,
If you don’t know me,
That does not remove oneness
From us;
Aren’t we closer than
We may realize?
Don’t we share common possession
Of the land on which
We live?
Don’t we share the air we breathe?
That flows freely around us?
And don’t we share the sunshine
And moon light from the sky?
We are one;
All humans are one;
We put unnecessary barriers
Between us;
To keep us apart
Wherever we live, we are one;
Meant to be one;
To live like a family.
The world is one;
And no matter where we come from,
The color of our skin,
The language we speak;
Whether rich or poor,
We are human and we are one;
We each have a right to be here;
To be treated with dignity
And respect.
The earth is for us all while we are here.
Let that be inscribed in our minds and hearts.
Let none wallow in misery
While others swim in opulence.
