Time for Change©

 

All through human history, humanity goes through periods of change, a shift in its story-line, either a change to better or worse- we are witnessing such times.  Our role as individuals, as well as our responsibility, is in what we do with it…what we do during such times.

The ground is shaking and trembling

Beneath my feet as I stride.  Stars are

Falling from above.  Dark is the hour

But, I sense the dawn struggling as

The light is trailing…I hear wailing

Screams all around.

 

Shrills of souls in agony, wandering

Yet not lost.  Searching, I join them

Looking for Justice, yearning for freedom

Finding none.  So far, the hope is yet

Kindled, a flame that flickers weak

But steady-beneath the ashes, under

Frost.

 

I hear callers of temptations, seducers

To give up the search.  Sirens alluring

Calling for segregation, calling me to

Serve myself-leaving the rest behind.

Rest, indulge, and sleep-I hear their

Flute.  I see their flaming pit of fire

Sparks but no light.  Darkness is their

Call, darkness surrounds their flame.

 

I go back to those who call for justice

I go back to the wandering souls.  I hear

Truth in their words, I sense goodness

In their claims.  Surrounded with so much

Evil, we push through and through.  Together

We will reach, together-hope is born anew.

 

Light is finally pulling through.

After a hard and painful labor,

A new morning is born.  Darkness

Defeated, victory to those who are

United, together we made it.  Love

Binds us, and disdain to injustice

Pulled us with force undefeated.

This much I know.

Fair As The Sun©

Fair As The Sun©

I look up at the sun

Rising up everyday

In spite of long nights

Cold winters, dark and grey.

Our lovely sun

Spreading light and warmth

To everyone East, West,

South, and North

Without discrimination.

I looked up at the sun

And all I saw was brightness

Clear, and true. I had a revelation.

I looked  down and around

Right and left..far and wide…

Shocked at what I saw:

Poverty, wars, killing…madness.

Injustice & inequality filled the land

Few had a lot, filled with gluttony

Greed and pride. whips in their hand

Chains of all kinds.

I saw some white, some yellow

Some brown and some black.

I closed my eyes and wished

That I was color blind.

I looked back up at the sun

And was filled with inspiration.

I had a dream, I knew that

A lot has to be done.

Unity, togetherness, and determination.

That soon fairness, Equality,

And Justice will rule the nation.

A Breath of Air©

A Breath of Air

Is all what we need.

The snuffling, muffling,

Stale is baffling indeed!

 

A fresh breath of air

Is freedom to the soul.

It is essential to be free,

It matters to us all.

 

Equality Is a birth right to all

Citizens of the nation.

We all breath air

without discrimination.

Equality is fair…

Without it, we fall.

Humanity©

Humanity©

Humanity is

What makes

A man Human

Not beast.

A man deformed

Is a man without

Humanity.

 

Humanity is a collective

Concept that unites

People not divide.

A common ground

For all our children

To grow safe and

For all societies

To flourish & thrive.

 

Humanity is the dream

The present, the past.

It is the drive

For compassion to bring

Us together, reach out

For each other to live

Continue living and survive.
