As I Watch Our World

As I watch our current earth,
the world so different, but so alike,
from our ancestors,
who lived hundreds of years ago.

Theirs, filled with the cruelty,
the cruelty of buying another person,
the color of skin,is the only difference,
between you and them,
the innocent men, women, and children,
taken from their loving families,
to be transported thousands of miles away,
to be treated as property,
to be moved from place to place,
without being able to say a thing about it,

Ours, still filled with cruelty,
but in a different way,
jokes made about someone,
someone who could cure a life threatening disease,
making someone so that they can't trust anyone,
because they’re scared of being discriminated against,
making fun of someones certain qualities,
and making them hate themselves for them,
bullying someone to a point,
where they want to kill themselves,

Our human nature will only change if we let it,
we are getting better,
better at treating all human beings as people,
people who are not so different from us,
but we are a long way from finished.
