We were human before our eyes discovered colours, and the melanin on our skin separated us from one another. Prejudicing against different shades of the same complexion, sundering the human race into a million directions. We were human before we learned how to hold a knife. The same knife that pierces hearts and takes one more innocent life. Floating around merrily in the blood flood of man kind, drowning away the last bit of humanity that one can find. We are human after all, full of imperfections and mistakes, Broken and flawed, in a million odd ways. Searching for a home, a family, and a safer place with a hope to liberate from being minions of our own race. We are human, connected since the inception of mankind, while humanity and peace, being the glues that bind. Let us be human from the start until the very end, with hearts full of love and compassion to lend.
