True Diversity

So let’s embrace true diversity
He said
Xenophobia should not extend
Beyond the stars
And species are more varied
Than our little world suggests
When reaching to the universe
We won’t find our own face
Reflected back serene
But something else
Something else

Let’s make of difference our friend
He cried
We’ll find the kind of love
That hope debars
And delicacies more plentiful
Than our appetites ingest
When floating in the stratosphere
A totally alien place
Till all this in between
Is something else
Something else
