Humanity is One by Ali Znaidi

On a ground full of pitfalls I walk.
On luxurious carpets you tread.
But nothing can make our stomachs
satisfied only a loaf of bread.

You watch the news on a plasma T.V.
I watch it on an ordinary screen.
Be it a plasma or an ordinary T.V.
Both we watch the same scene.

I walk beyond the horizon
running with the scorching sun.
My path is different from yours.
But at the end humanity is still one.
