How Similar Are We?

We share the same core.

galaxy freckles (pinterest)

We're all molecules,

                               made of atoms,

                                                  that make up everything,

                  (and everything else in the universe).

            With the same base coat,

                                                 we all feel the cold.

Woven together

                     from the same thread

                                               we share a similar fate.

                   Right down to the science of it

                       we all wear the same face.

We could've been

                        different

                                   burnt out suns

                                           or once we might have radiated heat,                                                                                                                                           together.

                      The magic of space and time

                         combined into one person.

                       This miracle called, 

                                                        Us.

                                    No matter

shape,

                                          size,

                                                                              color,

                      and yet we find the nerve to say

                                       that some,

get better

                     arrangements

                                    than others?

                                        Each vessel

                                    holding a soul is

                                     worth no more

                                      than any other.
