Blood is Blood is Blood

Blood is blood is blood.
It doesn't matter whose blood it is,
Blood is blood is blood.
It doesn't matter if your a man or a woman.
Blood is blood is blood.
It doesn't matter if your gay or straight.
Blood is blood is blood.
It doesn't matter if you don't come from the same country,
Or if you come from the same continent.
Blood is blood is blood.
It doesn't matter if you speak the same language,
Or if you pray to different gods,
Blood is blood is blood.
It doesn't matter if your skin is colored different,
Or if your hair or your eyes.
Blood is blood is blood.
It doesn't matter if you eat meat or not,
Or if you like rock or jazz.
Blood is blood is blood.

It doesn't matter what your differences are with others, 
Shedding blood is an act of violence,
It is unnatural.
It is wrong.

What is natural though is love.
Compassion, caring for others. 
That is natural.
That is good.

Love is hugging friend,
It is kissing a lover,
Sleeping with them.
Love is holding a suckling babe close,
Feeding it, keeping it safe.
Love is how you treat your mother and sister and brother. 
It is how you treat your neighbors and teachers and pets.

Love is natural.
It is what we all do and express.
Violence is not natural.
It is a crime, and no matter what justification you may have,
Blood is blood is blood.
