One of our basic needs in life is for certainty, to have a level of continuity, of sameness and to be able to know that life will have some predictability.  On the other hand, to prevent boredom, everyone needs a little variety or diversity to make things more interesting and to help us learn about who we are.

I have written this poem about "diversity:" 

I see a beautiful pattern

with contrast, light and shadow:
a complete variety of colors of the spectrum.
of shapes
and different shapes
and colors of shapes with shading
There are points of view-good and bad,
puzzles parts making up a complete picture
patches of a quilt,
parts of a body,
musical notes, up and down,
songs with many feelings,
happy, sad, mad
in between,
cultures,
languages,
animals,
plants,
people,
insects, minerals,
earth,
air,fire,
water,
mountains,
valleys,
intelligence,
personality characteristics,
all taking shape,
four seasons.
