Let Us Be Human First! - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

We belong to the same race, higher of all species,
We practice the same justice; let all of us be equal,
We are cured with same medicines either herbal or chemical,
We are touched with same emotions, that are unique,
We feel uncomfortable when the laws have mistakes,
We shed the same tears when we are weak,
We make merry when our hearts are light,
We group together to console someone in difficult,
We have the same intelligence to fight off the ignorance,
We are children of the parents, who were the siblings,
We may have different color, features and culture,
We have the same hearts that feel sad when we are hurt.

    We are all made of the same texture, though unique and our basic traits and instincts are the same! We are the children of the same Father! Yet how often we forget it and segregate ourselves into clashing groups! A thought provoking write! (Report) Reply
