The world is now consumed with an insatiable need to categorize and label all men and women, but is this correct? London artist and poet, Elle Smith, writes this reflective poem which asks whether it is right to label and categorise people. The poem is called 'We are the World' and it certainly questions profiling people:

The beauty of the human race,
is that each person is unique,
with a heart in the same place.
