Limiting Factors

Judge by colour of skin
Why is it still even a thing?
We are one and the same
This stupidity is not a game

Inflict damage upon a soul
We have never had control
It’s like judging by eye colour
Such a thing could not be duller

I am you and you are me
We are all part of humanity
Not a subset can be found
This madness will put us in the ground

Why won’t you shift from your outdated view?
One bred from the ignorance of a few

Judge a person by creed
Such a pointless and narrow deed
It matters not in the end
Unless you don’t want wounds to mend

Way of thinking I don’t get
Like hatred being the bet
Rather put my effort into more
Not tallying some deranged score

Brother and sister not in blood
War has never done us good
Kept us divided and in fear
Don’t understand why we stay in that gear

Why won’t you shift from your outdated view?
One bred from the ignorance of a few

Nations are just a name
Sticking with them is a shame
There is something bigger still
If we only showed our true will

Cut the past and let it go
It’s no longer on our flow
Historic but limiting
Let us start all over again

All for one and we’d be done
Species without the figurative gun
What a future that could be
If only we’d actually try it and see
