I, We, Us and Them

I said to him, "Each of us is different. That's is how all of us are the same."

He disagreed. He said, "Some of us are the same. Others are different."

Both of us agreed to disagree.

But those who agreed with him got many more to agree. Together, they felt scared of the others. Or maybe they felt the need to define us and them.

They got together and asked me to join them. I didn't see the point. They didn't see how I couldn't see the point.

They said to me, "If you aren't with us, you're with them."

There were others like me, who didn't join them. Thus came into being another us and another them.

We felt the need to do something, lest all get killed in the battle between them and them.

So we got together and created a space, where there existed only I and us. No one could be referred to as them. All of them and them could come in, provided they became us.
