Can’t we carry on?

A long history of non-finishing tussles and pressures comprise our story
where you want me to change the way you believe I should
and I compel you to act the way I see you should
repulsion, dejection and long list of objections
are what we carry in our hands
even after so much of a long time
there are tall walls that separate us
Can’t we carry on by accepting our differences?
Can’t we carry on by building bridges between two of us?
after all the rainbow is so beautiful coz of it’s different colors
being same is boring and stagnating
it’s time to accept and celebrate the differences
Can’t we carry on?

What difference would it ever make if I act like you and you like me?
won’t we be even then still two individuals?
if God wanted people to be so much the same, there would’ve been no beauty
can’t we learn to accept this reality?
what is it that we want to be altogether the same?
Can’t we carry on by respecting each other and the choices we make?
Can’t we carry on by seeing good side of each other?
can’t we learn to be different yet still bundled and bonded in one love?
after all the rainbow is so beautiful coz of it’s different colors
being same is boring and stagnating
it’s time to accept and celebrate the differences
Can’t we carry on?
