The words that we speak are thorns in my side, pains to my heart and shocks to my spine. Our insecurities and ignorance make us quick to judge giving no second chance. Brainwashed by our society into classifying people by constant labeling. I can’t help but think that we’ll never see that people are equal despite differences from you and me.

Female to male, we don’t need gender pride – the choice isn’t even ours to decide. Color to color, let’s use our heads – when we cut don’t we bleed the same color, that red? Nation to nation, must we compete – don’t we share the same soul beneath our feet? People to people, can we rise above – all of the past pain and hurt, and begin to love?

Is there a possibility to look past the first things that we see and close our eyes to outward differences which really only serve as false pretenses. I feel it again, day after day. Can I ever get far enough away. We’re so blind, do you think that we’ll ever see that people are equal despite differences from you and me.

To every man and woman, do we really need this gender pride? Cause it's just another barrier set up between us to divide. To all the different colors, do we really need this color pride? Look past that skin, there's a character that lies on the inside. And all the different nations, do we really need this nation pride? From what I've seen in the past, it only leads to wars and genocide. And all of these people, do we really need all this pride? Can we set aside our differences, begin to love just for loves sake?

Are we so different from one another? Are we? In sex? Aren’t the physical attributes enough? In color? Character is what should determine our differences. Nationality? Pride only alienate another. People to people, I find that we are all the same inside.
