Wonder why we arenít unified
Wonder why youíre so dignified
Wonder why we arenít one
Wonder why we canít get along
Wonder why thereís warfare
Wonder why unity is just a joke
Will it ever be true
That there will be no bygones
Between me and you

Same blood
Same race
Same ethnicity
Same religion
Same belief
Same nation
Weíre the same
But itís
Such a shame

I shake my head
And wonder why
Whatís going on?
Whatís this beef
Between you and I
Uproot the weed
Plant a new seed
Of peace and harmony
World brotherhood
Sisters included
Young and old
Be bold
And break the cycle
Of disunity
Break the chains
That separate
You from me
We arenít no different from each other
I know you arenít in my family tree
But youíre still my sister and my brother
Weíre supposed to look out for one another
I wasnít born into this world
Just to comply and go with the flow
Iím like those who
Want to bind together and grow
In sunny and rainy weather

How come we arenít one?
Will we ever be?
I have yet to see
Isms and schisms
Dissipate among humanity

------- Author's Notes -------

Replaced all my ain'ts with aren'ts this time. I have yet to use isn't. It's good to get away from the colloquial for a change.
