Addressing World Citizens - Poem by Roopa Menon

We have all taken birth on this earth,
Where murders, thefts and dacoity have no dearth,
All around us there is corruption.
Even today millions are deprived of education

There is carnage and hatred spread everywhere,
For each other people do not have love and care.
We are living in a world full of jealously,
Where like a ghost haunts the dreaded illiteracy.
Murders are committed in bright daylight,
In spite of police protection tight.
Women today are being beleaguered like animals,
By some of the political cannibals.

People do not have right to speak,
Of their problem’s intimacy,
Although we talk a lot about democracy.
In people today there are no more values.
People have become heartless like stone statues.
It is high time people wake up and fight,
And bring all the prejudice taking place to light.

Let us all live with concord and togetherness,
Forgetting all our rivalry and harryness.
With religious fights and violence of all kinds,
Let us not corrupt our children’s minds.
Let us not commit any more sins.
Let’s make this earth a better place to live in.

    Lovely thought Roopa. Let us dwell completely in the very Life of God so that God's goodness can be manifested to others through us. (Report)Reply
