Half full or Half empty

Two professors were arguing
that a cup was either half full
or half empty. While they were
still arguing, someone dashed
in and gave the half cup of water
to a little boy who was half-dead due to dehydration and the boy
became so full of life.
If we focus on our differences,
we won’t make a real difference.
If we stop defining ourselves by our differences,
if we stop sleeping in stark silence
if we stand with values to stop violence,
if we build bridges and break those fences,
May be we can finally make a real difference.
If we put kindness before business,
we won’t buy quick death with wealth.
Yes, money is good but honey is food…
We need not sell our sweet souls
just to secure some golden goals.
