WE ARE FIRST HUMANS


We are first humans
Before our races defined our colors
We are first humans
Before our gender showed us complex
We are first humans
Before our believes defined the values we portray
We are first humans
Before our egocentricity seared our hearts
We are first humans
Before our caste and class we created segregated us
We are first humans
Before we deadened our consciences to the plights around
We are first humans
Before intolerance ruined our ability to coexist
We are first humans
Before our systems crushed our hopes to equity and justice
We are first humans
Let us remain humans
Let us protect our dignity as humans
Our rights to right living
With no exceptions 

Happy World Human Rights Day
