We Are All The Same

We Are All The Same

A Poem by Erika Jones

We all scream

We all bleed

We all have tears to cry

So why are others [so]  different from you?

 

We all have voices

We all have choices

We all have places we see ourselves go

So why are others [so] different from you?

 

We all have dreams

We all have nightmares

We all have beliefs make mistakes

So why are others [so] different from you?

 

We all feel pain

We all feel love

We all feel sadness

So why are others [so] different from you?

 

We all have something in common

We all have something to believe in

We all have some place that we want to call a home

So why are others [so] different from you?

 

We all have faith

We all have hope

We all have wishes just like all of you

So why are others [so] different from you?

 

Why are we different from you?

Because I know deep down inside [we are]

Something you can never change, no matter what you say

Because we're we are all the same.

Something that came to mind, and as I was typing it, it sounded like a rap that Hollywood Undead would possibly do as a sequel to Paradise Lost or something xD! Me and my imagination!

Edited!!! [ ] means something was added and words with a line through it means they were either changed or taken out! Enjoy :3 --Ej
