Distance, Or Connection? Poem by Eric Cockrell

Distance, Or Connection?

Rating: 5.0

it is time to throw the damned tea into the harbor again!
every thought we have, every feeling we have,
every word we speak, every action we do...
either creates distance between human beings,
or creates a connection!

distance equals death,
connection equals life!

i am sick and tired of the bullshit that says:
we are right and they are wrong,
we are good and they are evil.
our religion is right, and theirs is wrong.
we're going to heaven, they're going to hell...
a damned lie!

every human being deserves the right to be human.
every human being deserves the right to love, and be loved.
every human being deserves the dignity of equality.
every human being deserves the right to work,
to have shelter, to be fed, to dream!
every human being deserves to be free!

i choose connection!
if you choose distance, walk away.
my religion is human interaction.

Great sentiments, but so difficult for the human race to achieve it would seem.

You have correctly said that it is a damned lie to speak proud of one's own religion, country, race, language etc.
