Y.... Differences


So many differences between one another
I love my Muslim brother
I love my Christian brother
I love my Hindu brother
I love my Bhuddist brother
I love my Jewish brother
I love all my sisters too
Somewhere deep inside
I believe that God loves all of us too

Let us celebrate our differences
Let us learn all from one another
Let us celebrate our similarities still more

I love my black brother
I love my white brother
I love my yellow brother
I love my red brother
I love my brown brother
I love all my sisters too
Somewhere deep inside
I strongly believe
That God loves all of us too

Let us celebrate our differences
Let us all learn from one another
Let us celebrate our similarities still more

I love my liberal brother
I love my socialist brother
I love my central democratic brother
I love my right winged brother
I love my left winged brother
I love my communist brother
I love all my sisters too
Somewhere deep inside
I strongly believe
that God loves all of us too

Let us celebrate our differences
Let us all learn from one another
Let us celebrate more still our similarities

I love my rich brother
I love my poor brother
I love my obese brother
I love my hungry brother
I love my middle class brother
I love all my sisters too
Somewhere deep inside
I strongly believe
God loves all of us too

Let us celebrate our differences
Let us learn all from one another
Let us celebrate still more our similarities

Can you imagine a world
Where all of us would be the same?
We need the differences
The key is humility, humbleness

Let us celebrate our differences
Let us learn all form one another
Let us celebrate still more our similarities

    A perfect poem for Malaysians. Though we say like this, everyone of us have this imagination that our own is better than others and try to influence our believes into theirs. Any way well written poem! (Report) Reply

    LOve is something inside that non destructible it can sew all part as together but it never breaking parts into pieces..love appreciates all people without discriminating, and that's a real love not just a word or temporary feeling...Differences make life so beautiful, if world only has one color..all same...not special, but differences make life so gorgeous green trees, blue sky, red flowers...so people...cultural beautiful especially warm attitutes..what a blessing to have all of this..and it comes from One, Unconditional Love_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
