Absolute Complexity.

What creed are we following?
How do I know who is behind
Humiliating manipulations?
The creed I know is sad;
White, black, pale and brown
Short, tall, rich and poor,
Named after nations, beliefs,
Religions and sectors.
None is there whom you really
Can call 'a Global citizen'.
What had He in view, shaping
Man in best of moulds, was
Nothing but the beauty so
Promising as colors mingle!
We wronged in knowing
A design so divine!
Spreading ruin and ban
Turned all colors into one;
The brightest red of all
Races, using refined weapons!

    my goodness, what a theme and flow, indeed there is Absolute Complexity and hatred we have in the name of race, religion, and color.........
    very though provoking...... surely display a character of universal outlook, sweetly toned the hypocrisy, dissimulation and duplicity of contemporary globle politics.........
    need a bit focus to relish thevcharm of such sublime piece
    great job sir........ (Report) Reply

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
