Our focus should be the planet.

Burrowing myself under
like a fragile mouse
hiding away from the noise
of this civilization
the callous words of both the victors and the bereft
the weak stuck beneath the floorboards
the quiver of their lips
the further we all slip
a divide
do I go back and hide
both sides are fueled of hate
every great race is about power
on the end of the line there is a caller
telling me it’s about equality
and I say we are all flawed
why can’t we just love rather than hate
why must everything be a debate
why can’t we dislike without violence
our focus should be the planet
not the color of every man on it
why must we judge by appearance
who dictates our obedience?
Why can’t we just accept skin tones
as merely the flesh that covers our bones
it’s not a badge of honor nor disgrace
regardless of our shade were all a part of the human race
a species too self indulged
within a deep seeded need to judge
and neglect a truth they can’t accept
simply put no one can thrive without a planet.
