Mixed Bag

Features, facets, fitting together
Working toward creating
A cohesive whole
Or causing conflicts
In one soul
Challenges to face
Understanding to gain
Majority of the units are
And arbitrary mixed bag
A surprise that we try to accept
And work to our advantage.
There’s not a lot we get to choose
So do the best with the choices you do have.
Beware the pitfall of
Focusing on differences
Separating us from them
And taking for granted
All the facets, feelings, and features
That are the same.
We are more alike than we are different
No matter the severity of
Our differences of opinion
On topics we hold dear.

(This is my October 28th contribution to Poem A Day October.)
