Hello everyone… Today I want to share with you a poem I heard from a little girl living next to me. This poem talks about who our neighbour is and how we should relate with them.
Here we go….
Who is your neighbour…? Is it the one that lives next to you, that is near you day by day…? Certainly not, the world is much larger than your clan.
Who is your brother and who is your sister…? Is it the one that just share your surname…? Certainly not, the world is much larger than your family.
Your neighbours are bound in the wide world around… Your siblings are all around in the wide wide world…
That boy in need, that girl in need of succour, that fellow crying for love… That is your neighbour and that is your siblings.
That elderly bent grandma and grandpa unable to cross the road… That is your neighbour, a hand from you will see them through.
That poor mate of yours attending school on empty stomach, that is your neighbour, your shared snacks will lift his soul.
This actually add to my horizon on who my neighbour is. A lot of people think or believe that a neighbour is the one that lives next door… But actually we all are one family living in a big building called earth with different apartment and the one language common to us all is Love.
We are each other’s neighbour, be it you live in America or Australia, Haiti, Liberia, Iraq, Russia, Nepal, UK, Nigeria, India or anywhere else in the world… We are each other’s neighbour and we should watch out for one another.
Thanks so much neighbour for your time… One Love
