What Do I Have, That You Don't?

I have food,

but so do you.


I have clothes,

but so do you.


I have friends,

but so do you.


I have a family,

but so do you.


What makes us so different?

What makes me unique?

Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

I will never know


But at least we have something in common,

a common thread between us all,

let us celebrate these similarities 

instead of hating about them


This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
