Mankind's Anthem

Mankind’s Anthem

One planet Earth,

Life-giving,

We call her our Mother.

Man cuts her up into territories.

Says,this is mine,that’s yours.

Forgets on the other side,his own kind.

Calls himself civilized.

Ironical! don’t animals mark territories?

Says,He belongs to higher consciousness.

Yet, He kills.

Kills for an idea.

Kills for a piece of land.

Kills for a belief system.

Has He really risen up?

On the other side of the wall,

A mother cries.

Her son has died.

This side,Is there a reason to rejoice?

Ah! but this has been happening.

For centuries,nobody questioned it.

Why...who created it..What’s the need anyways?

We follow.

A herd follows.

Intellect,like the grass, chewed up!

Nationhood, religion,rituals....all walls....all Man-made.

Where’s the wisdom?

Look at little children playing,

Blacks,Whites,Browns,all skin tones,

All rejoicing the game of life.

No Walls,No Divide,Untouched by rigid layers,

No Bloodshed,No fear,

Effortless,Peace reigns here.

Man created nations,let it be Past,

Choose to break all boundaries, in the Present.

No territories,just One World in Future.

No yours,no mine,All Ours.

At the end of the day,

There’s a human being Here and There.

All are related.

One Earth,One Mother.
