People Equal

Some people shoot up tall.
Some hardly leave the ground at all.
Yet-people equal. Equal.

One voice is a sweet mango.
Another is a nonsugar tomato.
Yet-people equal. Equal.

Some people rush to the front.
Others hang back, feeling they can't.
Yet-people equal. Equal.

Hammer some people, you meet a wall.
Blow hard on others, they fall.
Yet-people equal. Equal.

One person will aim at a star.
For another, a hilltop is too far.
Yet-people equal. Equal.

Some people get on with their show.
Others never get on the go.
Yet-People equal. Equal.

well said, the beauty of a person shines when he is not selfish, the more he give and think for others first...
