We seek isolation as if sole entities in the universe
residing in the splendid isolationism of ignorance and arrogance
not understanding the strength that comes with unity and solidarity
that alone we are a small voice barely heard
but in numbers large enough to be heard we can make a difference.
Our xenophobic fear of those who we perceive to not be the same as us
is the flaw in our tolerance, understanding compassion and love for all others
which is a trait that used to run through us all but has now been
driven out by the fear tactics of those with most to gain.
