So many questions by Michael Kwambo



In all religions God is love
And the giver of life
He encourages peace and harmony
Cordial relations among all mankind
So why do we kill in his name?
Thousands of lives senseless taken away
Is there no tolerance amongst us?
Are we unable to appreciate our diversity?

I need to be able to have views
Different from yours
And still be your friend
Sometimes I walk down the street
And people sneer
Because of the color of my skin
Yet deep down we are all the same
Are we unable to appreciate our diversity?

They deny you the right to property
Because of your gender
They say no to your education
They want you to stay home
And take care of the house
Just because you are female
Can’t they see that you are
Equally capable of success
Are we unable to appreciate our diversity?
