Commonness

None can deny that they too feel the scorching heat of summer
The freezing ice of winter
None can deny that they too feel the vacuum of hunger
And sometimes feel the fire of anger

None can deny that they too feel the same pain
Happy on the same gain
Bleed if something pierces
Sorrow flowed by the ardent tears

None can deny that they too feel the same greed
The same need
The same envy
The same irony!

None can deny that they too attach the same stigma of criticism
The same disdain
The same sentiments
The same expenses

For we are all humans
The same homo sapiens group
The same love- hatred- shared in mankind
In the same debts bind

None can deny that an informal feeling descends
Of this commonness, sameness
An identity is established
Of the fair and dark humanity

Then why these walls?
Of the sameness
Of class, caste, religion?
Division ... Distinction ... Competition

None can deny the same similarity
And yet a difference
That marks its essence
Of this embedded commonness
