Equality


All mankind born of Divine pair, Adam and Eve,
Surely enough to prove, none is superior to another.
All are equal and deserve rights and respect equally,
As clan, creed and color is just ruses for distinction.
Deviating from premise and indulging in gimmicks,
Belittling and demeaning races outside each norm.
Erection of boundaries to deepen and widen the division,
Proof of erosion of the divine inheritance... corruption.
Why give destinies to some of poor peasantry?
While others are slated to rule by birthright?
Compassion should scale all boundaries erected,
Mankind shares all land and sea by divine order.
