In another life

Maybe in another lifetime
There will be no classifications or 
generalizations, nor discriminations.
Stereotypical consultations of 
people with no limitations of racial 
inclinations.

Shall external images forever 
dominate?
With eliminating of faces who do 
not pass on rankings.
God-forsaken souls trapped in 
bodies with boundaries.
Bodies trapped in bordered 
countries.
Why all these restrictions and secret 
encriptions leading our lives as 
fiction?

Will money forever define our 
positions?
Situations now rely on taxation and 
all other government operations.
Water, housing and education are 
more complications.
Should politicians and officials be 
making such conditions?

When will crime come to a stop?
As society live with their own 
possessions fearsomely and 
indelinquents carry on fiercely.
Fraudulent activities continue and 
surprisingly the "supposed-to-be-
behind-bars" live freely.
How do the innocent live as 
prisoners and criminals feel a full 
force of Uhuru?

Perhaps in another lifetime will 
there be no indications of such 
implications.
Money, appearance and crime will 
be nothing more than a waste of 
time.
But not in this life, maybe in 
another life time!

    The imagery, incredible. The wishful thinking, even greater. Strong message! Great work!
