'' Citizens Of This Earth '' - Poem by Bri Mar

We interfere,
In others affairs,
Then disappear,
Saying who cares.

Though we fail,
We claim success,
Leaving a trail,
Yes lives in distress.

People left crying,
Then move away,
It’s that or dying,
What would you say?

We refuse to budge,
They’re left without hope,
Both jury and judge,
Who cares how they cope.

In desperation,
They take to the seas,
Causing devastation,
Are they just refugees? .

This is real life,
It’s not a game,
Suffering such strife,
Would you not do the same?

Abandoning your home,
Is a very big ask.
With just toothbrush and comb,
It’s a very hard task,

Humans create borders,
They are all man made,
Acting under orders?
A game is then played.

What’s all the fuss?
Where our ship comes to berth,
They’re no different from us,

‘’ Citizens Of This Earth ‘’

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Lest we forget is common term used for the plight of millions who were butchered during the last world war, what's happening in our world today is a reminder that unless intervention is forthcoming on a world scale the same thing will happen again, '' LEST WE FORGET ''

    A beautiful thought-provoking poem. Man must redress the duress caused to people in distressed conditions.
    You have a humane statement on man's wrong doing.
