Difference

Difference

Thousand candles
Different demeanor
Burning…
From the same flame.

Thousand beings
Different tongues
Speaking…
Of similar feelings.

Thousand flowers
Different fragrance
Celebrating birth…
From the same earth.

All conflicts end
When we close our eyes, 
Look at the Source
With our burning soul, 
Wisdom surfaces, 
Difference dies.

I read here sometimes and don’t post or comment but I had to on this one. I read and loved it. It reminded me of a quote “We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.” but your poem says it far better. Just perfect.

Sometimes good vibes come out of bad vibes. This is a good example. A very human message, thanks.
