Appeal to Human Conscience: A Poem
So many ways to say I love you
and even more to express our hate
or pretend to be somewhere above you
being lower than snake's belly or being great.
Why do we need these extremes
instead of insisting on love and care
why having nightmares not only dreams
and why dirty games instead of playing fair.
Everyone knows how to be nice and polite
perfectly capable of becoming a friend
smart enough to tell wrong from right
yet, as if it's so hard to understand.
Millennia passing one stranger than other
with lies and wars and hate in our heart
even with insults to earth our mother
vicious and crazy though so smart.
If we don't feel any respect for our own fate
why not care for babies inheriting this place
to remember us as teachers wise and great
not like someone who shamed human race.
