Cultural Differences

I wonder at times how we came to have
The diversity of cultures around us
So much beauty in the world to share
Learning from each other is a plus.

But I wonder at times about some things
Like the treatment of others almost cruelly
Like women that are treated as lower class
As if there is no room to see in equality.

What gives a man the right to lord it over
When we were created as compliments of the other
How did this become a culture to be practiced
This to me is such a question and a bother.

With the inherent desire to have love and affection
I see no possible explanation that can touch my heart
If two people can’t share and feel united as one
Then there is no reason to keep from falling apart.

    it’s a beautiful poem!! I loved it and the subject is really important.
    I wonder when people will understand that there are no differences, that we are all created equal and the same. I wonder why they make distinction between gender, colours, religions, etc. What gives the right to ones to feel superior and to control others?
