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

grow

 

But

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

     

together

in

love
