The universe is diverse

Should we embrace our differences or look at them as a curse

 Should I befriend you because of your character and integrity?

Oh should I write you off because of history that’s petty?

Can I look beyond what I see before me?

And see what you can be

 Are your wins because of the color of your skin?

Or is it something deeper within

Are you better than me?

No I just think we see things differently

You say you’re smart

I just sit here and do art

But does that really mean we must live apart?

 You see a world where you’ve always been the first one

I live in a world where I want to be the best one

Bitterness, envy, and sometimes even jealousy

I wonder if it would be better to be you than to be me

Then I think stop being silly

Who would do what God has assigned to me?

If I’m busy dodging my diversity

Wouldn’t it be a lovely place to be?

If we could just celebrate and stop hating each other’s diversity
