A Clamour For Humanism - Poem by Maria C. Pires Costa

Countries, peoples across the world
Are in need of a wide, free gate
Through which noble principles,
Human values are supposed to circulate.

Not just business,
Trade agreements,
But other commitments
Are urgently expected
In the global scene.

Leaders, governments, authorities
Get rid of your obsessive greed
Say NO to corruption
Invest in jobs and education!

Youngsters are helpless
Children are starving
Diseases alarming
Yet millions are pumped
Into pockets privileged...

    No matter where we are, countries just a place of variety that diverse in languages and the style..but it never different in what every human help to manage people but it sad if it cut the link between hearts... Life and rich, never content without soul and where you are be alive as what you can find what life is and life is not a thing but appreciating what evolve in our living_Soul (Report) Reply

    Yes, invest in jobs and education so that the youngsters of our land won't have a dismal future! Corruption, the thief, pilfering public wealth and draining human creativity should be abhorred and the great divide between the rich and the poor, minimized! Your clamour for Humanism shouldn't go as a cry in the wilderness! ! (Report) Reply
