Differences make us stronger

Skill
Looks
Talents
Fitness
Wisdom
Intelligence
Understanding
Common sense
Each one of us
Has varying levels
Mine are not better than yours
Yours are not better than mine
Differences
Can be beautiful and
Compliment each other
To create strong
Relationships
Communities
Countries
But
Somewhere along the way
We allowed ourselves
To lose sight of this
Pitting us against each other
In overly competitive mindsets
And carrying around a
Corrosive spirit of offense
If someone doesn’t agree
With our way of thinking
Of our way of believing
Of our way of living
Of our way
This over competitiveness
This spirit of offense
Weakens community
Corrupts good will
Creates division
And a divided
Mind
Home
Country
Community
Will inevitably
Fall
