We shall strive to acknowledge that we are wholly responsible for creating, and maintaining, the destructively false interpretations of the physical differences between ourselves.
We shall strive to acknowledge that we are, in fact, all representatives of the same, fragile creature… one which is prone to ignorance and fear... but also capable earning one another’s respect and support through the wonders of accountability.
We shall strive to hold one another to the rigorous standards of truth, and through this unifying obligation, we shall be equipped to recognize that we do not, in fact, have enemies, but simply acquiesce to fears.
When we have done these things, we will know, at last, our true obstacle.
Unified forever, as a singular humanity aligned against this obstacle, we would reach the stars.
Humanity’s true obstacle: the thoughtlessness which arises from the comfort provided by absolute certainty.
Not exactly a poem, but still. I wanted to put it somewhere.
