For The Love Of Mankind - Poem by Melvina Germain

In my heart, I know we were put
on this earth for many reasons,
to enjoy every moment,
every hour, every day, every
season. To do the best that we
can do.

To love, respect and help each other
regardless of the colour of our skin,
or the amount of money in our pockets,
or the shape and height of our bodies.

We must look beyond the surface and
realize there's a heart and soul within.
Do we not all bleed the same. Blood is
the same colour no matter who we are.

We all have one heart, two lungs, two
kidneys, we produce the same.
We are all equal in the eyes of God,
why then are we not equal in each
other's eyes.

I dream of a precious love and hope
mankind will learn to live together in
harmony, become the brothers and
sisters we were meant to be.

We can make it happen, a positive
outlook dispelling all negativity.
All races can be of one collective.

Together we can change the world,
holding hands around the globe.
We can stand firm and speak out.

Life here on earth is short,
resolving our differences by
fighting is not the answer.
Time is precious, waste not.

We can make a difference,
first and foremost, the choice to
bring peace to the front of the line.
Our Father is a generous God,
our gifts are many.

    I'm afraid it is wishful thinking
    things are getting worse and not better
    only poets are in harmony
    thanks Melvina
