Across These Oceans....

Rating: 4.8
You are my brother,
Even though we're
Miles apart.

Even though you
Sing a different anthem.

You are my sister,
Even though we've
Never met.

Even though i've
Never heard your
Melodic voice.

God knew we will
Know each other somehow.

Across these oceans
I have a brother.
Across these oceans
I have a sister.

Your age is just a number,
Your skin colour,
Is one of the rainbow colours.

We all are citizens
Of the world.
We all are humans.

Beyond these majestic
Mountains and rivers,
I have a brother,
He is Anele,
He is Ngaka,
He is Young church,
He is Benjamin,
He is Gert,
He is Thando,
He is Zibele,
He is Nhlakanipho,
He is Success,
He is Lusekelo,
He is Makhosonke,
He is Shamba....

Beyond these majestic Mountains and rivers
I have a sister,
She is Jacqui,
She is Tanja
She is Margaret Alice 2,
She is Margaret Alice....

Across these oceans,
I have a brother.
Across these oceans,
I have a sister.

Beyond these oceans,
I have a brother,
He is Unwritten Soul,
He is Hans VR,
He is Gordon,
He is Dave,
He is Vipins,
He is Binish,
He is Ahmed,
He is Sir Eric,
He is Rorbet,
He is Hasmuk,
He is Ramesh,
He is John,
He is Wahab,
He is Advait,
He is Ibrahim....

Beyond these oceans,
I have a sister,
She is Silent poet,
She is Sanu,
She is Sajna,
She is Jinal,
She is Elena,
She is Deva,
She is Rekha,
She is LaSoaphia,
She is Kara,
She is Shadow girl,
She is Ekaterina,
She is Victoria G,
She is AnnaMaria,
She is Chantelle,
She is Brianna....

We all are citizens
Of the world.
We all are humans.

Even though i've never
seen your smile.

But your fingers
Do the talking,
And your voice
Warms my heart...

What a lovely poem. If we can find just one thread in a fabric that unites us across the oceans that fabric is worth cherishing. My best wishes to you.

It's our nature to try and dabble in much love from our fellow men. But sometimes we look ourselves in the mirror, and we see those we call our brother, our friends, our men. This merely shows that we are one. We are only stardust... a universe experiencing itself through you and I. Great peom here. I really fell fond of it.

You are right, the whole world is connected. What you see in others, they are in you, because we are all children of the Universe. Only not too many people wants to accept it.
