Dreams and desires

How diverse is the world,
Somewhere greenery somewhere desert,
Somewhere abundance somewhere scarcity,
Somewhere peace somewhere war,
Somewhere conventional somewhere unconventional,
Somewhere roots somewhere kite flying high,
Somewhere undeveloped somewhere glittering technology,

How diverse is the world,
Somewhere a dying kid by malnutrition,
somewhere wastage of food. 
Somewhere a girl fighting for education,
somewhere wasting the resources available.
Somewhere struggle and desire for equality,
somewhere equality getting misused.

How diverse is the world.
How diverse is the desire.
How diverse is the need.
How diverse is the dream.

As you say ours is a very diverse world with all manner of contradictions
