Clash of cultures, how we see,
is as varied as fish in seas!
When we live and speak as one,
we shape the world and it becomes.
Some create a world with walls,
Others dream of skies that move.
When we look at other’s eyes,
if they differ we then deny.
Some delight in musics pound
Others choose a lilt that lifts.
Some repose in structures bare,
other’s colours light the night!
Some genteelly ride in buses
while others banter as tire scream.
Each of these is quite unique;
each believe their’s is most right.
Some protect and cover up
every aspect of their hearts.
Then they bare their flesh with flair,
and astound those who wouldn’t dare.
Some explode with wails and screams,
pain exposed for all to see.
Then they cloak themselves in cloth,
So to keep privacy intact!
So we each meander life
drinking sweetly from our past.
When our journey drops us curves,
we then discover there’s more to learn.
So to keep our future bright,
we really need to blend our strands.
As we journey and learn to love,
its so good to keep holding hands.
