The World Within - Poem by Elijah Ifetayo

Imagine a world without discrimination;
Where black and white speak of harmony
Where no mouth pronounces ‘segregation'
Where all sing only the hymn of unity

…the world is within us;
Singing a song of harmony
Day and night in our minds
But we seek only vanity

…the world is within us;
Calling on us in her silent voice
That our guns spill no blood again
That we allow peace to reign

That world we imagine
Is not yet beyond our reach!
Its voice speaks within us;
Let all tribes and colors listen
