Looking around myself,
What does it mean to contribute to diversity
Just a rose in a garden full of daisies
Being different means power
It means being unique 
And so much more the world is able to see

To bring out so much my background has to offer to this world
The very little the individuals around me will see
Their learning
Education is power
And diversity is our strength

The one inside me is just like everyone else
Or is it
Knowing the one's around me don't feel this way
But that's okay
I am happy to be apart of any garden the earth has provided me

To be a rose in a world of daisies
To be a smiley in a face of frowns
To be a fish in a world of sharks
Am I the only one

The only raindrop from a thunderstorm
The rare flake from the blizzard
The petal of the flower
The word of a poem

 

America is its own beautiful garden

Full of daisies, roses, sunflowers, tulips, and so much more

Just like the wide range of people of different cultures

All living together in one big, happy garden

 

Does it need to be changed, I wonder

No, the thunder yells

Higher authorities wish to separate us but people have power

Just like the lightening vs. trillions of raindrops

We all came from one and we will all rise as one

 

We may have grew up in different gardens of the world

But now we are all together

Let us respect, love, & build peace not walls

With one another

Open our minds as we open our hearts

Diversity brings us together
And makes us all feel like one
It shapes this wonderful planet 
In which we will love one another 
And grow just like the garden with a rose
