Something More Than Me

Stop watching the News
of gangs getting together
Country to Country
lining up with their
bombs
and threats
and demands
Our way is the only path
Our god is the only truth
Our style outshines yours
What if your all right?
But that your god and
His one are the same thing
seen from a different angle
that your customs and ideas
are as outdated
and
incomprehensible
as the others
What happens if right now
we need to preserve
history is some other
substance than blood
and a new time has come
where we must
see the similarities
put the differences aside
for us..for them
for the simple case
of a small race
on a tiny planet
just trying to survive
Don’t let the new species
on the endangered list
be us.

Artist's Description

Sometimes I wonder about cultures and human life. It seems that we are fighting against our selfs to the detriment of the species. I see ideology and greed take countries and people to a bitter and bloody end. I wonder if we all stopped caring about what the other person thinks and worked really hard on being accepting and understanding maybe it would make the world easier to live in.
