Poem: The Others

So many various varied people in the world.

Each of us has a story that you can’t see from the outside.

A story that you could not guess no matter how many assumptions you make.

We ‘other’ others because they are not like us.

We separate ourselves from them,

Fear, judge, dislike and vilify them,

The others.

Pain, love, despair, hope, grief, joy, disappointment, and pleasure,

These we all share.

No matter race, ability, religion, sexual orientation or gender,

Cis or otherwise.

As much as we ‘other’, we are the same.

We must be tolerant, be understanding, be curious, be compassionate.

Don’t you think?

Let all of us be us and let none of us be them.
