we are people

we know who we are.divide us by borders
and label us.when you war/you kill us
we argue ,confront,converse,contradict among ourselves
we generally do not damage each other.
if we do,we imprison ourselves.give ourselves "time out"to get peaceful
we generally do not need weapons when we talk and listen
we delegate official violence to police and army
so we can live peacefully in a market economy
makes us look under the bold print-we find people(like us)
who are distressed economically because of such actions
we will still not take up arms/even when BLOCKADES starve us
even when bombs blow up our houses,and tanks demolish families
we are people.just like you.In Iran,,Palestine,Sudan,Yemen,Syria-
tell me-what would you do?
