Perhaps one day
We will put away
Those difference
That define the
Other and instead
We call one another
Dear sister or brother
Perhaps
Perhaps one day
We will close our
Eyes thus enabling
Us to see past this
Mere physicality and
Recognise that we
Are the same in
Our difference and
Attempts to explain
Who and what we are
Perhaps
Perhaps one day
We will allow children
To grow without teaching
Them so of war and hate
And instead allow them
To make of life what
They will
Perhaps
Perhaps one day
The earth will stand
Still and marvel at how
Far we have come should
By chance we have undone
The damage we did to her
Perhaps
Perhaps one day
