These Times

We take hope in those we’d trust.

We file into line because we must.

Win or lose the powers that be.

Have an obligation to look after me.

They represent whilst taking a tax.

They’re accountable it’s a simple fact.

Criminal the neglect of late.

Unlawful in scaremongering hate.

For we in this country, this continent, on this earth.

Are humans, all equal at birth.

We in this era have a simple choice.

Make it unity and together in one voice.

Say no to self interest, to division, to hate.

Say yes to brotherhood, sisterhood, before it’s too late.

We Are All

We are all one colour,

We are all one creed.

Whether here,

Or there overseas.

To the stars we’re the same,

As we are to disease.

Only your eyes see a difference,

Only your minds decree.

If we don’t banish futile tribalism,

If we can’t come together as one.

We as a species on earth,

Will soon be over, done.

And with us all other life,

Will be burnt from this rock.

It’s there for all to see,

It shouldn’t come as a shock.

We are all one colour,

We are all one creed.

And only together as one,

Can we save humanity.

Daily Prompt: Foreign

We live in two countries,

Thousands of miles apart.

Millions of strangers between,

But somehow we got a start.

We live in separate nations,

Oceans in between.

But to me you’re far less foreign,

Than my own sovereign Queen.

We are in essence alien,

Cultures different yet the same.

But at the base of all is our love,

Identical wherever we stay.

Our Children!

Must our children pay a price?

For their ancestor’s mistakes.

Can we not draw a line?

Let them choose their own fate.

Must our children inherit our prejudice?

Our disdain for that not ours.

Can they not decide?

Isn’t that within your power?

Our children I tell you!

You alone must act!

Do not believe all,

Presented from past as fact.

Study the evidence,

Decide for yourselves.

And then and only then,

With wisdom set sail.
