We Are All We Have
We’re born with our eyes closed, and we leave with them closed. In-between, for however long we’re on this planet, our eyes are open.
And yet, sometimes, it feels like they’ve stayed closed since our first breath in the open air.
We see colour, but we see it as something that makes people different and not in a good way.
We see love, but it’s the wrong kind of love if it’s between people not of a different sex.
We see beliefs, but we rip them down and start wars to force our own beliefs on others.
We see so many things that are beautiful, but we taint them with our own twisted vision of what’s beautiful.
But we are all we have.
If only we opened our eyes, we would see we are all the same.
We live; we love; we laugh; we cry. We experience the same joy when a new child is born. We experience the same pain when our loved ones die. At our very core, we are all the same.
We are all we have. More than that, though, we are all we need.
It’s time to open our eyes to that.
