Set Down Pride and Stand Side by Side

We all get offeneded

This is due to wounds that were never fully mended

There is no such place on Earth where something cannot hurt us

So why do we continue to fuss

My heart longs for those who are hurt

Sometimes people just are too kurt

Sometimes things need to be taken with a grain of salt

And people need to stand up when it is their fault

No one is perfect

It is not worth it,

to constantly bicker

or rudly snicker

What I wish is for a world full love

However, that only comes from the divine above

We all differ in many ways 

Some of us have had better Mays

We are all of the same

We are all of shame

Therefor, there is no one we should blame

Love is love

A dove is a dove

You are you

Just like one plus one is two

We all have different beliefs

That does not mean we have to all be chiefs

Set the septor down,

and remove the crown

I am in the wrong and so are you

The sky always will return to blue

I like yellow and you like green

That is no reason to be mean

What I want to say is there is no reason yell

Just taken in the beautiful smell of the roses

And quit turning up your noses

Hand in hand,

we all need to take a stand

Together, set aside difference and come together

That is the start to making something better
