Not so

long ago

we’d employ  

every moment 

of our precious lives

in seeking validations

by others, letting our merits

measured by outside ourselves 


Materialistic compensations

constantly attracted us

to win the games

for recognition

and to help

our egos




never mind.

That was an old tale


What is more important

now, truly worth the measuring 

is to assess and evaluate OUR future,

OUR planet, and all OUR diversity on earth

and treat us equally with no distinctions


As we keep our egos aside, working

In one, there’d be a future for us.

With a sense of kinship and family,

we’ll not only survive but thrive,

uplifting hope for the planet

and children of the future


Time is pressing us

not for measuring

but for actions
