THE NEW DAWN
Sitting, relaxed, atop the cool grass-filled rock,
Jutting out proudly over the calm blue ocean,
I stared in stoned-wonder; held captive
By the magnificent rising of the yellow sun,
Ascending, gracefully, across the serene horizon,
And ushering in the bright and long awaited new world;
A world, free from the shackles of religion,
Unheld by the chains of ethnicity;
Devoid of the differences in colour.
A world wrapped up in the warm covers of peace;
Overshadowed by the immutable display of inestimable love.
A world tongue-deep in sincere equality;
Lacking the Political, Social, and Economic segregations;
Where none is poor or hungry; a violence-free
Community – where morality stands overall; scoring
On all points; in all ramifications.
I see a world where there are no foes – but friends;
Where the Lions lie closely with the Lambs –
Sharing, caring; and rapturously cherishing one another;
A world where the natural unites with the
Supernatural to form a universal positive whole –
Stamped with truth and justice.
This new world, which I speak of, begins with you!
