Lesson to myself.

Even though mankind is so diverse, the one common thread that binds us all is the fact that deep within we all want to find love and acceptance. It doesn’t matter how old we are or where we come from ,as long as we fit in we feel secure. For those who are different are at the risk of being judged . Yet isn’t it true that it is all the differences that makes the tapestry of life so colorful? Variety truly is the spice of life. So let’s celebrate our differences rather than ponder and judge over another’s style ;be it their actions,religion,fashion sense ,parenting style or just lifestyle. Each of us is unique with our quirks and strengths. Our beauty lies in our imperfections and the world will be a happier place the sooner we learn to accept that…..

Lesson to myself.

 

Ever thought about

How life would be

If everyone was perfect

As perfect as can be.

If every one of us would

Dress up alike

Sing in the same tune

And a similar voice.

If all of us would

Dance in glee

The very same step

To that one melody.

Or if we painted a picture

With the same brush stroke

No different hues

No variation in tones.

If all of us enjoyed

One flavor in food

The very same spice

We all thought to be good.

I just cannot imagine

A world such as that

No mountains, no valleys

So plain, no contrast.

Yet why do I strive

So hard every day

To convince others

To do as I say.

I judge, I blame

Someone dear to me

Because they choose to live

Albeit differently.

I sigh in disgust

Am quick to correct

To mould them

(In my eyes) To being perfect.

Wouldn’t life be easy

For all around me

If I learned to accept

And just let them be.

If I chose to look

At life with their eyes

I am deeply flawed too

Is what I would realize.

So now I accept not expect

And will continue to give

The best of myself

For as long as I live.
