Sitting here looking up in to the sky
It causes me to reflect and wonder why
Do we love fireworks in all their splendor and array?
But don't always appreciate differences in life, in the same way.
Part of the beauty in fireworks are the different colors bursting on display
Each shape, size and sound project in its own unique way.
We love this in fireworks, but often miss the beauty of this in life,
Where differences seem to cause division, prejudice, or even hatred and strife.
But once we realize that it's the differences that make us human
Whether race, nationality, gender, size or for what we stand
We will love and appreciate each other right from birth
And enjoy and celebrate our differences just like fireworks!
