Sea of Humanity

about

On the face of it, we can seem so different, but at the heart of it...

lyrics

She starts her day  
With a dose of news  
Angry and frustrated  
She logs into Facebook  
Vents and inevitably picks a fight 
With someone from the opposition... 

Who also starts his day  
With a dose of news  
Angry and frustrated  
He also logs into Facebook  
To vent and inevitably picks a fight 
With someone from the opposition  

They meet in the comments section  
Of some inflammatory post...  
And the war wages on 
Each believing the other  
To be the devil incarnate 

In reality  
Each is just a person  
Paddling as best they can 
With broken oars  
History gave them  
Firmly grasped within their hands 
Trying desperately to make their way... 
In this sea of humanity 

I pray 
Compassion be reborn within us 
Loosen our grips on old broken oars 
Allow us to reach for new and better ones  
So the children of mothers 
Young and old can rest on the seashore and
Not be lost at sea
