We, The People
By Salonee Singh
Never have I seen a world so against effective change.
With nonsensical views and illogical empty claims,
Melting the ice caps while fiddling with fake maps,
These people know not what they do to their own habitat.
Never have I seen a world so opposed to equality. “Don’t do this, don’t do that” is all little girls hear,
And boys being told they’d be weak if they were to ever shed a tear. These people know not what they do to their own children.
Never have I seen a world so bothered with the color a skin can wear.
If only we were more interested in each other’s stories, and the heart one’s willing to share.
These people know not what they do to their own souls.
Never have I seen a world that fails to realize, In the end, we are all we have,
And there is but one human race. Each person wants a sense of belonging
And it is up to us to create that space.
