We Live In The Same World

We live in the same World and breathe the same air
And whether our skin pigment is dark or is fair
Red is the colour of the blood we bleed
We are homo sapiens and of the one breed
Like all other life forms we are born to die
The myth of immortality is based on a lie
The pauper is no less a mortal than the billionaire
And with other life forms things in common we share
In science and technology humans have come a long way
Yet for everyone there is a last night and day
Three score and ten years the average human lifetime span
A few years more for a woman than a man
Like the Seasons of Nature to life we come to and from go
And the more we learn about life the less about life we know we know.
