still the same

I mix in vastly different circles

where voices often echo the same sentiment

the lament that days gone by were better than the ones at hand

they blame ‘the others’

I don’t believe today is any different than yesterday

or humanity has changed a whit

our problems may be defined in different terms

the voices that speak to me

embrace our common humanity

solving problems with an eye to everyone and not to tribe or agenda

we are still the same even if we bear a different name
