Humanity - Poem by AHO Speaks


Of all the powers, kingdoms and lands
Only the human individual still stands.
Not changed in the inner form
Since the very first created or born.

Eons of time and vastness of space
Nothing has endured like the human race.
Power has come and so did ebb away
Kingdoms rose and also fell into decay.

Nations and boundaries changed to new
The only constancy has been me and you.
We who are the temple and edifice of love
A custodian and giver of that from above.

We from whom the power never be taken
Else a purpose other than us will be foresaken.
We whom are the reason for king or queen
If not for humanity than for them only a dream.
We who inhabit and do the daily toil
If not for us then boundaries etched only in soil.
Human goodness measured not in power
For that time exists but a short hour

Not in kingdoms or nations of power and might
For their purpose of existence they soon lose sight.
Nations have changed like the shifting sands
But our continuity is based on other humans.

The individual nation who stands for internal we
Has a purpose of goodness and love for all to see.
The human act of goodness will forever last
As the key to continuity from out of the past.
