World Full of Joy

Flag flying high
On tall sturdy pole
With its majestic look
It's the nation's pride.

So is the flag
Of another nation
Flapping in the breeze
Standing equally high.

Nations are nations
Nations have borders
Borders that are virtual
Only found in maps.

Nations are made
Of people living there
People are people
People have no borders.

People are the same
Attachments are similar
Attractions are alike
Affections are mutual.

In a broader sense we see
Differences don't exist
Fights, wars and prejudices
Are artificially created.

What lacks in a place
May be abundant elsewhere
It should be easy to share
And make living a pleasure.

Nations are nations
Nations are people
Develop this knowledge
And fill world with joy.

    Borders are man made.... There is only one universe and one humanity! If each one is willing to accept this reality, there will be no tug between countries and people! You prophet of universal brotherhood, continue to inspire others through your lofty views! ! (Report) Reply

    So true. So many borders have been created and so artificially. People are forgetting what effects one eventually effects all. Very broad minded and sensible thought. You have powerful thoughts in simple words. Really appreciate sharing it with us. (Report) Reply
