Diversity and Inclusion (a Spoken Word poem)

Being different is as old as evolution,
for we are all people of varied origin and situation.
But diversity is never a basis for partiality,
for there can be uniformity in diversity.
Thus difference need not lead into confusion
but should guarantee and encourage co-operation.
especially in this world class organization,
that has no discrimination.

all we need is one love,
one love that fits our hearts like a glove.

They say what a man can do a woman can do it better.
But I wonder,
if a man has already done it, what is left for the woman to do?
However, it is hard to imagine a workplace without women,
for if men like the computer hardware,
then the women will be the software,
and the fact is, the hardware can’t function without the software.
Cos like the saying goes,
it takes two to make it work, and I can’t, if you won’t.

all we need is one love,
one love that fits our hearts like a glove.


Being of different race,
working in the same place,
only sets d pace
to raise the stakes,
and top the game.
In our differences lie our capabilities,
and our varied talents increase our abilities.
Creating healthy competition,
and developing wealthy association.

all we need is one love,
one love that fits our hearts like a glove.


Whether we are black and proud
or white and exceptional,
there is no reason to be dysfunctional,
Co-operation brings synergy,
and boosts the organization’s energy.
Ensuring we all stay happy and motivated
and grow old, satisfied and fulfilled.

all we need is one love,
one love that fits our hearts like a glove.
