A Human Being

Before I belong to a country,
Before I belong to a race,
Before I belong to a culture,
Before I belong to a family,
Before I belong to a social stratum,
Before I belong to a religion,
Before I belong to a cause,
Before I belong to a group,
Before and above all,
I am a human being.
Very different from you,
And yet, we are the same.
Let us listen to the wisdom
Shared by many noble souls,
And love our differences,
Or just respect each other.
Let us let each other live.
Let us let death come
At its proper time.
