Styling yourself against another, you call them enemy
Same flesh, same blood, same bone, same Earth
Pointing your flames, your guns, you put holes in he
Same laugh, same tears, same worries, same fears
Little recognizing behind pleading fear, the bravery
Same source, same water, same hearing, same vein
The fear is for you, as they plead for your humanity
Same breath, same heart, same liver, same spleen
In great humility, it will be done, whatever best can be
Same spirit, same pride, same love, same need
To keep you, their blood and bone, from this brutality

Artist's Description

Somewhat in explanation of Christian principles, rightly used. Not just Christian principles, you understand, because others have them, too; but, definitely ones Christians should have.

We are all one – not as in all paths lead to the same destination, as that would be silly and no one would bother traveling, if it were so. We are all one race, one people, with one creator. Borders, locks on doors, policemen, those are needed only because of how easily people are led astray in forgetting that. We are not our enemy, we are one race: human, bonded together by blood, flesh, bone, spirit, and purpose. The enemies are those who would have us think otherwise.
