Don't Compare

Updated on September 19, 2015

I am not you, you are not me

Then why this stupidity

To compare between different entities

Varying in shape, size & psyche

Why this comparison in religion

So called spiritual divisions

Islam, Christianity or Hinduism

Go for humanity and believe in humanism

Why this huge gap of being rich or poor

Parting people, nations and every single shore

We will be left empty-handed, when no more

Leaving behind, a cold body on the floor

I am different conscious, body and soul

Having different dreams and goals

Completing my liabilities through diverse roles

Enjoy this imperfection with no controls

This is my love, my life

My tears and my laughs

My experiences and my faults

My music, my waltz

I have no desire to be you

So don’t look at me through

Your comparative outlook

That's real me, unique & true.

      Great poem. It's true that being an individual with our own unique characters, interests and so on, it so much more important than following the 'norm' or judging others by what's in fashion etc.

      I love the message of this poem Richa, we are all diverse individuals and shouldn't judge others or expect them to act in certain ways. I also love how you deliberately spelt "compare" as "compare" in the title, just because you could and to make a point. Well done.

      I absolutely loved this Poem. 'Don't compare' I am not you and you are not me. We need to love, encourage, embrace and accept each other's diversity. This is what makes us all unique and special. Well done my friend. I voted up, awesome, and shared.
