THE SHOE RACK

Different shoes;

Different sizes;

Different colours;

Are found on the shoe rack.


Their origins,

Their designs,

Their makers,

Are also different.


How is it so,

That different shoes can stay together peacefully on the shoe rack?

The shoe will not move, unless one removes it from its place.

I bet it would stay there until eternity if left untouched.

The shoe rack and its occupants are an epitome of comradeship and loyalty.


Why is it,

That the world is unlike a shoe rack?

Different people,

Different statures,

Different races,

Are found in one world.


Their origin is one,

They are of two designs,

But their maker is one.


How is it so

That people with one origin,

Find it difficult to stay together peacefully in one world?


The shoe rack is an epitome of comradeship and loyalty;

But the world is a wreck,

And an epitome of contradictions, conflicts and war.


Oh ye people on this earth,

Emulate shoes on a rack,

And the world in wreck,

Will be as harmonious as a shoe rack.
