Abandon Disparity

With so much unrest in the world and fighting among nations,
Our ardous task should be to control our vulgar passions.

Advertent and inadvertent misuse of theology is rampant,
Propagation of conflict seem to be our course so adamant.

Selfishness, self righteousness abound with too much racism,
False leaders stalk our communitties with goals of fanaticism.

We are torn daily between the disparities, living in division,
Forget not the drive for unity, as we chase false goals in confusion.

Stay firm on the pathway to undestanding, bury false ego,
Be true to your culture and divinity, be your descendants hero.

Submit to truth, accountability and co-existence in faith,
Beyond divisions is the unity of love, let's abandon hate.
