Same

I went to scores of countries 
smelled sea breeze and mountain air
in a way that made me
a little bit from everywhere 

You could say my whereabouts
are a rather peculiar affair
I am a seasoned resident
of neither here nor there

Embracing many cultures 
a striking thing I found
for instance, children laughing
make a universal sound  

The way nature shaped us
who we are, in short
our beliefs and values
belong to no passport

People own unique features
have a different look and name
but deep down, you come to realize
they essentially are the same
