Divided Society


Close your eyes

and envision living

in perfect harmony

with nature and animal.  

All of us at peace

with one another

being friends not enemies.

But when you open your eyes

you see war-torn nations,

poverty-stricken societies,

disease-infected countries.

Where is the love here?

Are we not one race?

Then why do we compete

as if we are opponents?

How much we could

accomplish if we

helped each other

instead of finding faults.

What a lovely dream.

One that may never come to be.

But I won’t stop dreaming.
