What Makes Us Different Makes Us The Same

Updated on September 12, 2011

We Are More Alike Than You Think

Each day is a challange that we all face

How we handle it is up to every individual and in their own way and time

With the whole world all around us beckoning to be discovered

We shall see every possible solution being attempted

Some good some bad and some will not try at all

Where you want to be is up to you

Your parents have guided you till an age where you have begged to do it on your own

From there on out there is no turning back

Many times we can reflect and wonder why we made the poor choices we made

Hoping some day real soon we will grow up

Lesson learned and then move on

This life we hold in our grasp is a balancing act from the start

Do you know something I don't

Have you found a secret passage way that takes us from A to Z quickly

I am afraid we have to sacrifice and make mistakes and sometimes get burned

Through it all we shall survive

If not we will perish like so many before us

How do we use all our capabilities to their capacity?

When did we learn to turn away from our responsibilities and bury our heads in the sand ?

If we join forces we can help each other and have more power to do many more things

You and I both know people are never happy with what they have

So may the best person win with one strategy in mind

Life is too special to waste and we have to learn to give it our all

Find a way to do whatever it takes

Live a happy life from our first cry to our last days when we close our eyes for the last time

Never to be opened again

      Moiragallaga Thanks for making my September 11 a little brighter.I try to find a way to connect us all in simple ways.It is amazing how much we all deal with our different struggles in life but then all go through the same feelings that make us friends and bond as one.
