We Are All Sisters and Brothers
Past the flags and the tags and the labels and signs.
‘Neath the reach of the superficial boundary lines.
Outside the divides of the nations and states,
Molds and holes, and the self-imposed lonely escapes.
Stripped from the grip of the ego’s veneer,
Below the surface of the circus of fear;
After the shows, ‘neath the clothes of the artificial covers –
WE’RE JUST SISTERS AND BROTHERS.
Above the perches in the churches where the conscience is kept,
Divisions and religions and traditions of react and regret;
Beyond the laws and the cause of the tribal crusades,
Past the caste and class sytem that exploits and degrades.
Behind space and time, deep in the heart;
Clean from the scenes that keep us apart;
Free from the fences and pretenses that distract us from each other-
WE’RE ALL JUST SISTERS AND BROTHERS.
No matter how many different languages we talk,
Directions we go, or roads that we walk;
It’s a well-known fact, they all lead back to the same mother.
Beyond the sagas and the dogmas and parochial scenes,
Behind the blinds of the closed minds and TV machines;
Far from the cars and the stars of material wealth,
Outside the onliness and lonliness of ego and self;
Under the thunder and the factional roar;
Higher than the fire of irrational war; Out of the shell and the hell of the separated colors –
WE’RE ALL JUST SISTERS AND BROTHERS! (4X)
