We are all global citizens,
looking up at the same sky, the same moon,
sharing the air, the water,
the incredible beauty and bounty
of Mother Earth.
We all have hearts
peopled by our loved ones,
all dream our never-ending dreams
of better days.
We live in hope,
turn towards kindness
like pansies turn towards the sun.
We, individually and collectively,
turn away from oppression,
our spirit-wings flapping
upwards and away
into the cerulean heights.
Whatever happens to one of us,
happens to us all.
Our fates are intricately woven:
wolf and human will feast or famine
together as the planet makes
its evolutionary journey.
Wherever on the earth we are planted,
wherever we feel we most belong,
we are much more alike
than we are different,
of a universal song.
