We are One: Poetry

The Great Wave of Kanagawa - by Hokusai

Let us hold hands
together in Mourning,
Stand in a circle 
round the Earth

Until all of us 
are Equal,
Whether of low
or noble Birth

Let us bow 
towards the Horizon,
Let the wind take 
all our Fears

Let history
stop dividing Us
Through the sheen
of hateful Tears

We are One 
before the Quake
and One after
the Tide

We are united
when we grieve Together
for every loved one
that's ever Died

Standing alike in chasm
 between old age and Youth,
It should not take calamity
to make us see this Truth.
