A stream of hatred that runs through society:
our words of criticism can spread hate against variety.
Every person is unique,
each artifact an antique.
People should understand
that our cultures are our brands.
What's the problem with being different?
Whether we come from here or come from afar,
our homeland is part of us, it's who we are.
Each dance and each song,
have rhythms so strong-
All different yet the same,
our beats can't be tamed
Our differences make us beautiful
