Aggression, dominance, conquest and such
Behaviors we applaud as masculine
Just demonstrate how far we’re out of touch
With kindliness and love, and lost in sin.
Life in the jungle may have given rise
To such warlike behaviors in our past,
But Homo sapiens will not grow wise
Till gentle generosity rules at last.
Until each person feels safe and secure
With every opportunity to grow,
Peace and civility will not endure,
Antagonism being all we’ll know.
The greatest stride toward which we are inclined
Will make us all allied as humankind.
