Borders ~by me

Updated on March 29, 2016

Looked down from the sky
The world looked like one

Looked up from the earth
The sky looked like one

When I looked around me
There were none who were one

Rich and poor
They called each other
Black and white
I heard them say

Borders they created around them
Cracks they made within them

They lived their lives along
Fighting across them

What they didn’t notice
Was the stars above them

They were shining together
Right above them.

~ by me

      Hi Angela, I think it's a lovely poem. It reminded me of when people say "take time to smell the roses"; only you are saying take time to see the stars above. Thanks for sharing.

      Blessings to you.
