The same

We all wish to be rich
And be the best looking to walk the street
And we all hope that some where
Is the perfect person waiting for us to meet?

We all want to have very nice house
And live a life very happy
Some wish to travel the world
And some wants to marry and start family

And to live a comfortable life
And everyday was easy as 1, 2, 3,
To some it do become a reality
And to others it will, remain a fantasy

But no matter what we become
We all need each other skills to survive
For the doctor who can save a life
Need a mechanic to repair his car to dive

And when the president of the U, S, A,
Having of eggs coffee and toast bread
He needs the poor illegal farmer who harvest
And work till their fingers bled

And all the kings and queens of the world
Needs the unknown tailors and seamstress
So when they come out in public
Every can see how very they are dress

And we open our Christmas gifts
And put the garbage out the next day
We are so happy to come home and see
That the garbage man has taken it away

My grand mother use to say
That one hand can not clap
So we all can’t be heading one direction
We will reach no where following the same map

So no matter if you are very rich
Or if you are very poor
We need each other to build a house
Pave the roads or open a door

But still some feel the need to think
That they are better than others
When they find their self in trouble
Then they realize that no one even bothers

Some may accidentally spill coffee
And their new laptop
Then take it to the geek
Sayings please make the problem stop

The man who cuts the grass
To make the million’s yard looks nice
Or the old Indian lady cooking
That mayor Bloomberg like her curry and rice

We all can not be the same
But we make this world work as one
And the sooner we realize that
Then a new direction in our life has began

There are the unfortunate ones
Just look around us and we will see
And if we pretend that we don’t notice
Then its shame on you and me
