HUMAN DRIFT



An unseen power made a common Universe
but Man made boundaries on them
Boundaries on land, on water, on air
Boundaries on colour and caste.
The rich getting richer, the poor poorer
It's a competitive world for fame and name
Children are dying from lack of vitamins
Mothers are crying to save their siblings.
Once the world was one solid rock
Catastrophe made it drift apart
North, South, East and West
That's how Continents seven scattered about.
The sun does shine on all alike
And the oxygen all breathe is one
The rains that fall are cool to all
And the blood of each is one.

About this poem

Semblance is lost in many parts of the world. As years pass by, the situation is turning out to be grim. Poverty is increasing, starvation is sickening. Lots of riches wasted which could have salvaged the needy. Time to heal and save the world.
