When and How ( a poem of inspiration)

A better world may be our own...
A better world may be our own...
We are all related... those who may reside upon this earth...
We are all related... those who may reside upon this earth...
The human spirit will greatly shine when all are united in respect and brotherhood...
The human spirit will greatly shine when all are united in respect and brotherhood...
a single act of kindness may be greatly amplified...
a single act of kindness may be greatly amplified...
All are granted freedom to worship in their own ways...
All are granted freedom to worship in their own ways...
What a beautiful world it would be, if there were no fights, cross words, wars and terrible hatred to reign over us...
What a beautiful world it would be, if there were no fights, cross words, wars and terrible hatred to reign over us...
What a bright future our children would have to look forward to...
What a bright future our children would have to look forward to...
No more hostilities...deadly intentions and words of war...
No more hostilities...deadly intentions and words of war...


When we, as a people, truly accept one another,

no matter our race, creed, or colors of our face.

We shall be a fine example, of this, our shared space,

our humanity, finest reflections, without disgrace.


Until we decide that all have a God given right,

Without insurrection, terrible disputes, non to fight,

Our society shall sparkle, all brightly glimmering,

Shinning forth for all to see, as the stars at night.


When a child from another country seeks to find,

a new home, in our own neighborhoods, as our own,

Then we welcome them with open arms, as a blessing,

in acceptance, smiling faces, made not to feel alone.


While other faiths, unlike ours, profess, to worship,

All to proclaim, and attend, in their own way,

Given fullest respect and justly revered, this to say,

Is our time of redemption, in such a loving day.


At public places, the mix of cultures, all unalike,

Yet are given room, that of their greatest free will,

Does proclaim our freedoms, written upon pages,

As we may each, and everyone, to read them, still.


This, our world, still spins about the warming sun,

As a moon lights our way at night and is so right,

We shall gather around a likened table, together,

Break bread, in brotherhood, share with all our might.


How this is done, forgetting ourselves, to think of others,

Remember that we all are related, as sisters and brothers,

Every mother's child has needs, just as if they're our own,

Given a part of this earthen soil, where we all belong.

Whonu, this is such a great poem and hub. It speaks volumes to what we are dealing with in the world today. I am so with you on this. I do not and never will understand why people do not see we are one. We are all brothers and sisters of our father. It's so upsetting to me. I guess, in a way, I can empathize to some, for the sake that they are scared and this drives them to their cruelty with racism and banishing. However, is this the right way to act even though we are scared here? No, I am scared sometimes. I do not claim to understand what is going on, but I could not turn my back on others simply because they are labeled to a certain group. This is not correct, labeling is not right. We are here to come together. I believe this with all my heart. We are not here to fight and separate. Whatever each of us believes to be the true religion and way of life, I know this for certain; we will all in end up in the same place in the end. Great Hub!

Your words speak of life as it should be. It seems the world is getting farther and farther away from the brotherhood of humanity. I pray it comes to an end soon. The dissension, not the world.

That is so right. After all, this melting pot of America was filled with immigrants since, and for all practical purposes, it should continue. Everyone should have their place here, as long as they are capable of pulling their own weight, just like was done before.
