Them

There will be 'us' and 'them' for as long as there is an 'I' and a 'you.'

The 'I' and the 'you' is. It is reality. The two can appear to be the same but yet, they are very different.

‘Us’ does not happen by obscuring the difference. ‘Us’ does not happen by disguising it with sameness. ‘Us’ happens only by recognizing the difference, and by embracing it.

When ‘I’ and ‘you’ become one, there is only ‘us.’ There is no ‘them.’

Well put. I love this because following the nature of change in language is a metaphor for the nature of change in relationships. Thanks, Bungi.

And btw my confusion after reading your post increased after reading the comments.
