You and I (Poem)

Les Henson


I am me, and you are you.

You are not me nor I you.

You and I are similar yet so very different.

The differences between you and I are many,

but so are the similarities.


I am not more valued than you,

nor you more valued than I.

You and I are alike but not in all things

nor in every characteristic of our lives.


I outshine you at some things,

but you outshine me at other things.

You and I are both genuinely unique,

yet our uniqueness is so very different.


I am not an island,

but neither are you.

Indeed, you need me, and I need you.

Hence you and I are much better as we,

not separate but together as one


So let us together agree to be friends.

May we respect and trust one another.

And may we commit to caring for each other,

so that we may live together in oneness and unity.
