Our Connection


We share the –
Same earth, same history
Same origin, same destiny
Same ancestor, same life
Same brain, same mind

Our outer experiences may be different,
But our inner experiences are same
Our stories may be different,
But our emotions are same
Our pain and pleasures are same
Our joy and miseries are same
Our fear and struggles are same

When I see our –
Pride and ego
Insecurity and jealousy
Anger and aggression
Revenge and scheming
I realize –
Our survival tendencies are same
Our desperate attempts are same

When I see you, I recognize –
How I want many things from others,
Forgetting what they want from me
How I judge the attitudes of others,
Forgetting my attitude towards others

When I see you, I realize –
How I cling to my views and opinions
How I want friendship in my terms
How I demand love in my terms
How I lead communication in my terms
How I expect life in my terms

When I see you, I understand –
How we misunderstand each other
How we mistrust each other
How we fight with each other
How we destroy each other
Not realizing –
Our connection with each other
