standing-together

Standing Together

Burn your flags
break down your borders
for today we are one.

We have always been one
but have been lost -
fighting senselessly.

We are humanity
rare, unique, frightened
by feared mortality.

We are alone
yet together.
We are together
but alone.

All we have
is where we stand
if we stand united.

We draw the same air
We sip the same drink
We bleed blood.

Don’t be scared
submit not to fear
we were born to die.

Burn your flags
break down your borders
for today we are alive.

We have always been alive
but obsessed with death -
fighting one another.

We are equal
flesh, fragile, stronger
by our total.

We are confined
yet free.
We are free
but confined.

All we have
is where we are
if we are whole.

We cry the same tears
We feel the same pain
We bleed blood.

Don’t be scared
submit not to fear
we were born to live
together.
