Making The World A Better Place! - Poem by Julius Babarinsa

For the world to be a better place for us and our children
It must become a just and a compassionate society
We need more love to replace the overflowing hatred
We need more kindness to replace the cruelty everywhere
We need more philanthropy to replace our selfishness
What will be your own contribution?
In making this world a better place
Poets enlighten our mind with words and ideas
Police keep the society safe from crime
Soldiers protect the nation from the enemies
Medical doctors heal the sick and the wounded
The Congress makes laws for a democratic society
Teachers educate the leaders of tomorrow
Lawyers defend us from illegalities
Postman ensures we receive our mails on time
Mechanics help us back on the road
Whenever we have a breakdown
What about the destitute in the society
Who cannot help and assist themselves!
Those who are powerless to look after themselves
Who will help the poor and provide for the needy?
Who will shelter the homeless and assist the beggars?
Who will aid the unemployed to secure a job?
Who will look after the abandoned children of the world?
Who will advocate for the battered women to get justice?
It will be fallacy to expect the three levels of government
To provide answers for all the problems in our society
When are you going to start your own contribution?
To make this world a better and friendly place
The time is right now, not tomorrow
