Pronouns

Pronouns

written by: Brad Osborne

 

What makes “you” and “me”
Become the pronoun “we”
And how do “we” find the “we”
In every face “we” see

Is it a grand illusion
Some ego fed confusion
A social dissolution
That holds onto exclusion

Differences are few
When seen in larger view
And “we” are stronger true
When “we” means every “you”

If together what “we” wish
Then each an accomplice
And as a catalyst
Let “me” ask “you” this

If “they” are “we”
And “we” are “them”
Then aren’t “we” all
Just “us” in the end
