Keep It Together

491380135

Why do you call one another names?

You say that you are faultless

As many self-proclaim

But life is not always black and white

And sometimes we disagree

Or we straight out fight

But to dismiss what one holds true

Belittle, label another person

Is not for me or you to do

If we could all just be more self-aware

Consider each other’s view

As this world we share

Using slurs such as prejudice and racist

Name calling without reason

No proof or any basis

This will not bring us together in any way

Make the divisions larger still

Never see a newer day

Why not grow? Instead you embrace the strife

Not understanding how to respect all

Or learn about each other’s life

I ask you to look for some good in every person

As you will encounter many on this journey

Instead of the conflicts worsen

Don’t hold things against another without cause

Take time to learn about each other, listen

So future generations can applause©

  1. Nicely written….yes…everything should be looked at with positiveness….finding out the good in everyone…..that’s the best way….:)

  2. I do agree with you! I think often the same.

  3. I was too fast 🙂 It is so important to emphasize the common and not only what distinguishes us!
