The same

When the same red blood runs in our veins,

When the same blue ocean washes our shores,

When the same green plants give us energy,

When the same pink roses add joy to our hearts,

When the same yellow corn is our staple food,

When the same white milk gives us strength,

When the same indigo is the color of our jeans,

Violin, the color of our dresses,

And grey the color of our ashes,

Why do we consider ourselves

So different from each other?

 

Look at the yellow stars,they twinkle

To one and all, those diametrically

Opposing characters, those with matted

Or curly hair, white, brown or black

Without any discrimination.

 

The same sunlight drenches our souls,

The same moonlight caresses all lovers

And the same waves fondle our breasts.

 

We are all like birds of passage with rich plumage

Resting on the lighthouse that guides

Our destiny and takes our ships

To the right direction.

 

Love is blind.

Let life, like love be blind.

Those with eyes see but discrimination

And the blind, with the power of inner eyes

Sees but grace and beauty.
