(Exert from the poem, Power to The People, PerfectlyFlawed (My eBook on Amazon, Nook, iTunes, and Google Books, as well as paperback and hardcover) by Malak klamoni Chehab)
To promote healthy relationships among family,
Friends, peers, colleagues, and everyone else who try
To help in the development of each individual
child’s character who needs everyone’s support
To feel safe to express his/her emotions
And beliefs freely without enduring oppositions
That are degrading, demeaning, or destructive.
When leaders become violators of human rights
Using their lagging conniving techniques
To manipulate, motivate, and ensorcells
Those who are ignorant or lack intellectual acumens
To lead themselves out of a rut created by our systems
Of economic growth that preside with the material worlds,
We, the people, become their Puppets, thoughtless.
Politicians’ speeches today contain content that uses
Demeaning, derogatory, even vulgar contents
That empower one race or religion over others!
Why, why do we still follow these creatures of dissention?
Why don’t we permit ourselves to be humane and lead to a graduation
Of compassion, empathy, understanding, and humanization
Of our beings? Let us express our beliefs freely,
Without rancor, hate, or division!
Man’s abhorance for what s/he doesn’t acknowledge
As accurate, real, truly verifiable is what is limiting
His progress ethically, for s/he seems to be regressing
Into polytheism and empowering scientific knowledge
Over values that teach humanity not to stay the course
Of being altruistic to their own variety and difference.
Archeologists excavate the ground
To find what was in ancients’ minds. They found
By doing so they expand the mind,
Learn of their tools and ingenuity that they find
Exhilarating, as they observe recurring patterns
In history that we can avoid, if only we learns
That the difficulties of life that they surmounted
Are things that we, in our day, would find hardships
Trying to overcomes.
How do we teach ourselves and our progeny
Understanding that they still do apply today?
To learn from our and others’ experiences, fully.
How do we convince the new generations
That theirs is Not the one and only way that excavates
The mind, finds solutions, and resolves
Unknowingly implementing their ignorance traceable
To their upbringing and entourage, capable
Of imposing restrictions and actions unfavorable
To our survival.
Our perception of race, superiority and inferiority
Are just labels that we impose to understand
That which is incomprehensible for us.
Humanity excavates its center, extracting
The same red blood, emotions, and needs.
