Can We Band Together?

Do you see the ethnicity of our blood?
What is the colour of our hearts?
Focus lost on irrelevant questions
Of one nation under blue skies
This one planet in this Universe
Divided by self-imposed borders
Labelled differences
Our eyes misty
When the land bleeds red
Or when it lays waste
In charred ashes
Or when it melts together
In muddy puddles of misplaced water
Or when it cracks and breaks
With not enough
May we band together
As internal forces
Attempt to pull us apart
To save our humanity
May we all win
