Human Family by Maya Angelou

Human Family

by Maya Angelou

I note the obvious differences
in the human family.
Some of us are serious,
some thrive on comedy.

Some declare their lives are lived
as true profundity,
and others claim they really live
the real reality.

The variety of our skin tones
can confuse, bemuse, delight,
brown and pink and beige and purple,
tan and blue and white.

I’ve sailed upon the seven seas
and stopped in every land,
I’ve seen the wonders of the world
not yet one common man.

I know ten thousand women
called Jane and Mary Jane,
but I’ve not seen any two
who really were the same.

Mirror twins are different
although their features jibe,
and lovers think quite different thoughts
while lying side by side.

We love and lose in China,
we weep on England’s moors,
and laugh and moan in Guinea,
and thrive on Spanish shores.

We seek success in Finland,
are born and die in Maine.
In minor ways we differ,
in major we’re the same.

I note the obvious differences
between each sort and type,
but we are more alike, my friends,
than we are unalike.

We are more alike, my friends,
than we are unalike.

We are more alike, my friends,
than we are unalike.

No dia 15 de abril de 2015 meu querido primo Eduardo Farias Gonçalves escreveu esta amável nota pela passagem dos 93 anos de meu pai Harry Berndsen:

“Parabéns grande tio Harry!   Que proporcionou na infância e adolescência dos sobrinhos da minha geração muita alegria e realizações.

Qualquer novidade na cidade seja um circo, um avião, um navio ou até mesmo buscar leite nos tambos do Areal lá estava o tio Harry pronto para “irmos longe para fazer amigos”.

São muitas recordações boas desta figura ímpar.

Que Deus te abençoe com muita saúde nos teus 93 anos. Beijão grande.”
