We Are Family 我们是一家人

We Are Family – Poem by Michael J. Burt

we are family,
although we do not resemble
although i am black and you are white
although you are rich and i am poor

we are family,
even though i am democrat, and you are republican
even though your ancestors are from Iraq, and mine are from Africa
even though you teach the class i’m enrolled in

we are family,
although i’m a poet and you are a singer
although you are old and i am young
although i’m a gentleman and you a lady

we are family,
even though you praise Allah and I praise Jesus Christ
even though i love football and you play soccer
even though you are a Sagittarius and i’m a Cancer

we are family,
although i prefer rhythm and blues and you love blue grass
even though you have a car and i have a bus…to ride
although i have love and you are alone
even though you dress one way, and i dress the other
although my family loves me and yours does not know of you

we are family,
you and i are family,
me and you are family,
no matter what the difference is
family we are, forever
because we are here, and here is earth
and earth is our home
so here, we will live,
we are family.

我们是一家人——诗作者:迈克尔·J·伯特

我们是一家人,
尽管我们没有相同的容貌
尽管我是黑人而你是白人
尽管你富有而我贫穷

我们是一家人,
尽管我是民主主义者,而你是共和主义者
尽管你的祖先来自伊拉克,而我的祖先来自非洲
尽管你在教书,而我在参军

我们是一家人,
尽管我是诗人而你是歌手
尽管你已两鬓斑白而我风华正茂
尽管我是男人而你是女人

我们是一家人,
尽管你信仰阿拉真主,而我信仰耶稣基督
尽管我爱橄榄球而你喜欢足球
尽管你是射手座而我是巨蟹座

我们是一家人,
尽管我喜欢节奏布鲁斯而你钟爱蓝草
尽管你开私车而我乘巴士
尽管我拥有爱情而你孑然一身
尽管你我穿着打扮风格迥异
尽管我的家人爱护着我,而你的家人却不曾知道你的存在

我们是一家人,
你和我是一家人,
我和你是一家人,
无论再大的差异
我们是永远不变的一家人
因为我们生活在这里,生活在地球
地球是我们的家
家,是我们赖以生存的地方,
我们是一家人。
