An Ode to Sameness


An Ode to Sameness

It’s a mystery to me…
I wake up happy
And others, grumpy.

So much in common
Differences seemingly nil
Same house, same milieu
Everything the same as you

I try to make everything fit
The same, but don’t you know
It’s a shame, the response to sameness
Differs somewhat, and behold…

What delights one, frustrates another
It pleases you and angers your brother;
And neither can see the other’s side
The brother, the sister, the groom, the bride…

Who can celebrate this diversity
When we only want harmony?
It’s a mystery to me…
