Can We Begin Again?

If we do not believe in God
Or our country
Or any race
What is left?

Only those we love?
Is that enough?

To be huddled together
Afraid, without hope
With wounded minds
That once were kind?

Only animals?
Upon us they depend
Without malice
Eager eyes brighten
They only know love

As we walk apart
Controlled by others
There is still a chance

Barked stripped
Dead leaves
Still we stand
What are we now?

I see you as a man
Not as a sinner
Or a saint
Or a patriot
Or a traitor
Or a slave
Or a master

I only wish to talk
Can we begin again?
