Such is the call of humanity:
Use your members productively.
Arms that though tired gather the lost and hands though shaking cease not to beg for the orphan in need.
Use your voice productively.
Speak out though trembling in fear, for the vulnerable and amplify the cause of the abused, whether man, woman or child.
Use your pain productively.
Let your heart once cut up with knife edge words empathise with those suffering the same.
Your gentle words, laced with wisdom shall be as soothing balm to heal offence and shame.
Use your life productively.
Uplift hearts with an offering of self-less love, never to expire.
Within you is the capacity to inspire.
Such is the call of humanity.
Humanity in harmony speaks of peaceful co-existence and resistance to divisive persistence.
Humanity in harmony is as the sound of a splendid composition from a symphonic orchestra, a reminder of the perfect handiwork of the skilled creator.
Humanity in harmony is a song with diverse harmonies perfectly intertwined, compelling the listener to erupt with rhapsodies of praise.
Humanity in harmony is a rainbow of colours, individually significant yet their brilliance is enhanced only by convergence.
Without humanity in harmony, we are as good as dead.
A patchwork of diversity. A picture book of skin shades,
they blend. Chalky, charcoal, chocolate, latte.
Flamboyant attire and flavours, they set a trend.
Divided, a diverse people cannot stand.
Disagreeing voices are as disjointed body parts:
lifeless and as chaotic echoes far or near: hopeless.
A nation is as strong as its people. Therein lies
its power. United, its strength is as the ox, a danger
to the roaring lion in its stead.
Black and white piano keys played together,
sum up equality. The lyrics shout: “Our love for one
another casts out fear that plagues us blindly” and
“All men are equal” resonates daily and spells harmony.
