Different but Alike

We are all different from one another

But we are also the same

You ask how we are alike

But only because you cannot see it

You tell me that we are different

But I say that we are the same

You say we're different by race, by gender,

By height, and by weight

But even though our differences

Are proved by these

We will always be alike

No matter what the reason may be

Because we all have eyes, noses,

Ears, and mouths

And because we all have lives

And our own precious dreams

Everyone can be the same

In a large variety of ways

But each person can also be different

In their own ways too
