Who really knows another human being? Are culture barriers impossible to breach?

I suppose if we all flaunted true colors

the world  would reel.

We might find

we are all fibers in the same piece of cloth.

Any pulled thread would cause an appalling rent,

 the unravelling of the whole garment.

Likely, we are so closely knit

That you can't hurt without my shrinking and pulling.

I spend my time on my little inch of the globe

squinting against glints of individual threads.

Actually are you so different from me

that it's like binding mohair and burlap?

Rabbit fur with rayon?

Do you love you children?

Hope better things for them?

Are your prejudices nonsensical?

Must your increase mean my decrease?

And if so, why does the thought of never seeing

your true composition

cause an ache, a feeling of potent loss?

I like this what you wrote (we are all fibers in the same piece of cloth.)

That I belive we are all part of the same and for that we can be one if we just let it happen were all part of each other when you hurt I hurt.
Thanks for this
