A New Message

Let us remove together
The dividing lines of race and colours,
And wherever is the fire of odium,
Let us extinguish it together,
Now our eyes meet
The spectacles of inferno on the motherland,
Why should not we change
The wilderness into a garden,
We should get released ourselves
From the scaffolds of avarice for wealth,
Fraud, ignorance and jealousy,
Wisdom should accompany humbleness,
And a thought the truth,
We should impart the world a new message,
Give the message of new dawn
To those who have left behind
In the dark night, tell them
Henceforth there will be
No negritude but only light,
We wish peace in the world should prevail,
We pray for the beauteous morn to come
For here is a gathering of the thirsty,
Come ahead together,
Life is for others and along with others,
Whether there is pain or pleasure
Come ahead together, and do not frown
And rescue those who are about to drown.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
