People and Peoples

People and Peoples

These peoples in people,
Many in one,
These peoples in people,
Different yet one,
These peoples in people,
Delightful and fun,
The very same but distinct,
All in one.

These peoples in people,
A layered complex,
One part from one world,
The other from a far off land,
The sweetness, the talk,
The rudeness, the bluntness,
A myriad of layers,
People not to be blamed,
It’s the peoples in the people,
Many in one plane!

PS: The concept of People and Peoples has been taken from  Erik Erikson (15 June 1902 – 24 May 1994) who was a Danish-German-American developmental psychologist and psychoanalyst known for his theory on social development of human beings. He may be most famous for coining the phrase identity crisis. In his book titled 'Identity, Youth and Crisis' he makes a mention in the chapter Foundations in Observation of  peoples in people, which basically means that each individual has many individuals withim him/herself for in their growing years a number of psycho-socio-bio -environmental factors impact him, which make him NOT one but many peoples in that one person. Hope it made sense?:)

It does make sense for I have thought about this a lot - humans are a single race yet there is so much variety, so many distinctions, so many differences that not even two are the same.

This applies on a deeper level also, I s'pose, with emotions and pain and such being similar but differently felt by each person:)

Good one..
