Celebrating diversity

DSC04201In our lives we all enjoy variety

Variety is indeed celebrated in society

A range of experiences in cuisine, fashion and art

Give an  impression of being smart

What a well-rounded individual, people say

You can win admiration in any soiree

Mankind was designed to explore and savor

Diversity in this world, taste every flavor..

**

Variety is great as long as it is confined

To inanimate objects, pursuits of the mind

Yet when we talk of diversity of human race

Variety seems to lose its exalted place

Most of us then tend to somehow lean

Towards “our kind”, we try to convene

With those who share our cultural belief

Being in like company is a relief

Those different from us we tend to criticize

Difference is essential, we do not realize

For all the other experiences varied

Are tied in with cultural differences indeed!

**

Cultural diversity if we could celebrate

If we could learn how not to discriminate

Among each other, and try to understand

Different view-points of the earth’s inhabitants

May be more peaceful we could be 

And end senseless violence gradually..
