Poetry: Maya Angelou – We are more alike than different

Mirror twins are different

although their features jibe,

and lovers think quite different thoughts

while lying side by side.

We love and lose in China,

We weep on England’s moors,

and laugh and moan in Guinea,

and thrive on Spanish shores.

We seek succes in Finland,

are born and die in Maine,

In minor ways we differ,

in major we’re the same.

I note the obvious differences

between each sort and type,

but we are more alike, my friends,

than we are unalike.

We are more alike, my friends,

than we are unalike.

We are more alike, my friends,

than we are unalike.
