Poem about our differences
We all have a story
No one has the same
Some seek out the glory
So others know their name

Some can find the good
In everything they see
Change the world they would
If we could hear their plea

Some have a difficult road
To walk down every day
Carrying their load
A heavy price to pay

Some dance in the rain
Some worship the sun
Some are able to hide their pain
While others come undone

Some hearts are locked in chains
Broken and full of fear
They are consumed in shame
And feel that no one cares

Some have lost their hope
To be well enough to live
Day to day they cope
Unaware of what they give

Some come to the end
With a long life lived complete
Wasted time they did not spend
With resentment and deceit

While we are different from each other
Our goal should be the same
To live our lives together
In love and not in shame

All it takes is a smile
A kind word or maybe two
A little love can stretch for miles
And it starts with me and you
