Life - Sides Of A Coin - Head And Tail - Poem by Tshililo Thomas Radzilani
It require purpose to create will
It requires to be valued to have meaning
It is a mixture of bad and good
Its strings are religions and politics
Daily in neighbourhood one is born while other is no more
Sitting together with varied minds
Walking past each other with varied purpose
Being in single trip but not same destinations
In partnership but seeing things differently
Attending same conference with different agendas
In same religion but different emphasis
True it is different schools of thoughts
The poor and the rich are in different platforms
The capitalist and socialist talks past each other
If it is the majority who is for minority?
Does the vocal speaks for all?
Does the powerful matter about the weak?
Does one with full stomach speaks for the hungry
Does one with shelter looks after the destitute?
Are the able bodies looking after the people with disabilities
Do we care for environment to care for us?
Is economic development everything?
What is emancipation?
Where is sustainable development?
What is education and what is civilisation?
Why climate change?
What matters on the planet?
Humans, animals and coachroches?
Whose rights are important?
In the world of innovation and creativity what will remain in its original form?
Is everyone for themselves or for others?
Are continents or regions united?
Are animals equal in a zoo?
Can United Nations answer?
