This is the fifth poem in my social commentary series. The theme for this poem is unity in diversity. Prejudice and discrimination are concepts which should be relegated to history, as in the past. Let the future hold the promise for a better world, where people are not discriminated against because they are the minority, look different, have different beliefs, are of a different social status, and so on.
A world that does not
Look at one’s colour
Communities without boundaries
Not limited by their prejudices
That our strength lies in diversity
Not in discrimination against minority
That one’s neighbours
Are friends and kindred spirits
Humanity as one big family
Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers
Tolerance as acceptance of differences
Embracing and unifying in harmony
Don’t try to classify people
According to one’s perception
Wouldn’t the world be a better place?
