Ubuntu #NewNormal #A2Z


(African) I am because you are. 

The belief that we are defined by our compassion and kindness for others.

How we wish and maybe

sometimes cherish

that we do it all alone! 

but the fact remains

no human can be an island

at best we are walls

or bridges

held together by

all the other bricks and mortar

life lived 

collectively and together 

is the best by far.


This is my 6th #AtoZ, read the posts from previous challenges HERE.

  1. Ubuntu is one of the favorite African words of mine.

  2. Ubuntu is such a beautiful concept. Perhaps an apt name for a free operating system.

  3. Indeed we all need to live symbiotically

  4. Ubuntu is such a wonderful concept! Living together in harmony could make this world a paradise. Lovely poem.

  5. So true. We found out this past year (unfortunately, the hard way) that we are indeed all in this together -- and our action/inaction can affect so many others.

  6. Wish this concept can be practiced in true sense !

  7. Beautiful poem and beautiful concept! Kindness and supporting our community are so important.

  8. Have read a lot about the concept of ubuntu... love it and hope someday we have leaders who push for it
