Global Family

The world is changing and the world is renewing,
People meet and people mix,
Changing culture, expanding and renovating;
Life on earth is ever renewing,
Internet, Jet-travel, Telex and Telephone,
Breaks barriers of space and time,
People travel to distant places,
Attending functions and family events,
Brother in U.K and sister in United States,
Uncle and aunt in Singapore,
The family though separated,
Comes together in times of need,
Globalization, high-tech and on-line,
Build a global village true and strong.

About this poem
