THEME OF POEM: PEACE

“ONE BROTHER, ONE NATION “

We all live on one planet and in God’s

hands, we were molded from dirt and 

when we die, to dust, we will all return.

We are born naked and no wealth 

and back to its final journey empty.

In God’s eyes, we’re all special,

our apprehension leads us to

dissimulation of judgment,

creating jealousy, hatred and 

greediness, that evoke a chaos life.

We should have no borders to cross 

and no immigration officers to scrutinize, 

 with one faith in one God, no race and no

declaration of skin color. Nobody is 

illegal or displaced immigrants.

Now, I sing my glorious song and thanksgiving 

for God gave you and me as one brother,

from umbilical cord and one universal type of

blood flowing on our vein, inherited from our ancestors,

from Africa, who live in a continent, we now share us one home,

our one and only planet earth.
