We are the Same

We act different, appear different,
talk different, yet, we are the same.
We breathe and share the same air.
We are similar. We are familiar
with differences. Different things
separate different people. A wall
is broken down as people agree.
We see things a different way.
We fear what others might say.
We often forget; we are the same.
We are humans living and dying.
We came from the same place.
We will go to the same place.
The difference between me
and you is that you are you
and I am me. We are both here
conquering our deepest fear
on the same spinning sphere.

Reign, Reign, Go Away

The people have spoken; They’re not pleased –

They feel as if they’re not worthy.

The people are hopeless as their voices cease.

The people who reign are blind to the hurting.

The common person, the 99 percent,

smiles and suffers in strange ways.

High above, from where rain is sent,

an elite person creates the maze.

High on top is a life of comfort,

a place only some can go.

High on top, away from the dirt,

thunder reigns down to and fro’.

Under your reign, you create the poor

that leaves people asking for more.
