It’s funny how much the world is easily engrossed by everything that goes on
racism, sexism, terrorism, economic issues
I could go on.
But we so easily forget,
Are we not all human?
a needle could prick the finger of a million and they’d all bleed the same way.
a single person’s smile could make my day just as well as the next girl.
we all scrape our knees and make faces at select foods.
we all make mistakes
we all feel pain of differing levels,
but that doesn’t mean it hurts any less.
we all cry. tears are inevitable.
we’ve all felt love,
heartache and heartbreak.
are what make you human.
there cannot be a single person who has not felt emotions
and feelings and real life because your trials & tribulations
and how you cope with them,
that is what defines you;
what makes you a human being.
what makes you, you.
A breathtaking breeze could come upon anyone and
they’d all still feel it’s warmth and comfort
as the sweet air presses against their cheeks & they feel free because
there is nothing
at that moment there is no war,
no wondering about when you’ll die
if only such bliss exists.
