As people on this planet, I believe we shouldn’t have a narrow view. My life and your life, our choices affect the world. We shouldn’t only care for our own prospects. We shouldn’t frown upon those who are struggling to adapt to a new life. See the strength in their efforts, and remember that we don’t know what brought them here looking for something better. An act of kindness to a stranger who might not know our side of the world shouldn’t be withheld. Do our part to welcome those who are new. Just take a moment to smile at them, or see a way you could help them on their way. We all carry the 99.9% of the same DNA, so we are all truly brothers. Let’s act like it.
The poem and writing above is a rumination inspired by Coldplay’s upcoming album Everyday Life. I don’t think I mentioned this before, but Coldplay is my favorite band. They pre-released the songs Orphans, which touches the topic of refugees, and Everyday Life. They are amazing songs and I recommend them.
Thank you for reading. Have a wonderful day or evening wherever you are!
This poem is about my personals feeling regarding a new and beginning religious experience in my life. These thoughts are only my own, and I do not wish to impose them on others. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone has the right to believe what they want. All the same, I hope you enjoyed this more intimate poem.
Does anyone else have this problem or feel in a similar way at times? If not, do you have any advice? I know that this something that I have found I seriously struggle with, and there are many factors involved with it. Let me know what you think in the comments, and thank you so much for reading!
