HIVE OPEN MIC 🎤 WEEK 123 || WE ALL BLEED THE SAME BY MANDARIN || COVER SONG BY PRINCESSBUSAYO
This is my entry to the Hive Open Mic 🎤 week 123 which the theme is “A better world for all” which was chosen by @daniky.
A better world for all (everyone) including the black and white, short and tall, thin and fat, young and old etc. There is no exemption when it comes to having a better world filled with love, peace, unity, supporting one another, fighting for each other, showing kindness and sharing things equally.
This is why I picked this song by Mandarin titled “We all bleed the same.” There is a need for us to recognize that we are one, and there shouldn't be hatred among us. There shouldn't be joy in killing and slaughtering ourselves, all in the name of greed and fighting for who should sit on the throne or be in power.
The world is filled with shedding the blood of our fellows, and we are so happy doing them. We do not show feelings for the other person at all. We are quick to judge others due to racism, tribalism etc.
We all bleed the same and why would we be happy pointing fingers at each other and standing against one another? We need to stop and embrace ourselves with love and always remember that we bleed the same. We have got the same feelings in us, and blood flowing through our veins.
There is a need to stop and ask ourselves this question before taking up such a horrible act, “What if I am in his or her shoe? How will I feel?”
When we can understand this and practice empathy, it will be easier to show love and make peace reign among us.
We all want a better world without prejudice. A world where we don't have to mock or embarrass ourselves. A world where we come together, strive to survive together and in the end, we come to realize that we are one.
It is not in us to judge someone by the kind of clothes they wear or the colour of their skin. We shouldn't keep moving from left to right, trying to find fault, but to be able to feel others' pain and bring them closer to us.
We want a world where we would look out for each other. A world where someone's pain should be our concern and not turn a blind eye to their problems. Let's be our brother's keeper and we will surely enjoy the world we have made for everyone.
