_You are me and I’m you

You are me and I’m you

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


Little separate us. All people want to live.


                   You are me and I’m you

People who see color, race and religion. Are truly blind.
Don’t you cry for the sick child.
Don’t you hold the mother or father who lost a son or daughter.
Share tears for someone else in mourning.

You are me and I’m you.
If someone is murdered near or far.
Miles separation doesn’t make us not know less sadness.

I know every life is important.

They shot down planes. What words can you give a family to understand?
In Africa and Asia. People murdered for the sake of religion.
Brother and sister. One planet and one people.
If you kill. The blood become part of you.
Who will make the Soldier understand. They killed for land and oil?
Soldiers know. You are me and I’m you.

Race, religion and color is forgotten when real men stand shoulder to shoulder.
Trying to survive and go home.

Who is crying for the Muslim and Christians being murdered in Asia and Africa.
All of us should.

Children are the future. We must teach them well. Brothers and sisters.
What did we leave them?

“An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”

“I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love.” Mahatma Ghandi quote

Blood demand more blood. Who will put the guns down first?  He who bow his head down to pray for peace. Offered food, water and medicine. These are the true peacekeepers.

Someone told me. We must fight. It is the nature of man. I asked her. Do you want your son to die for the greed of war? Her eyes watered and she held silence for a second. She said no.

If we accept war as a norm. You must accept your children fighting and dying for far away places who do not appreciate the life of children, woman and old people.

You can’t teach peace and kindness. You must want it.  Madmen are leading the world. USA need to stay home and quit sending weapons.

Old wise saying. Fix your own house before repairing someone else home.

We live in a sad world. A world where life shields are needed to protect woman and children is needed.

Thank you for reading and remember Rachel Corrie. A human life shield murdered by Israel.
