As the title of the poem implies, this is a poem about the brotherhood of all men.  The author is trying to argue that all people are essentially the same.  He uses the word "foreign" to mean "different" and argues that we should not see other people as foreign or different just because they come from some other country.

The author argues that all people share the same sorts of dreams and aspirations and problems.  He says that this is why they are all similar to each other.  He concludes by arguing that this is why there should be no war.  He says that war is unnatural because it is like fighting against ourselves.
