The Omen For The Wise

A Poem by Sage
"

This was a poem I wrote down for a slam poetry event which touched on pluralism, tolerance and inclusion, I must say Dr. Carl Sagan was my inspiration for this with his Pale Blue Dot. Hope you like it

The Omen for the Wise

Hear all,
Hear well my good folk
The world right now,
Is going up in flames and smoke

We are one species,
Yet we are separated
On lines of race and color,
We splendidly spread hatred

We've forgotten fraternity
We've forgotten kindness and love
We only want ourselves to grow,
But we forget we only reap what we sow

We want to go to the moon,
We want to explore space!
Yet because of our bitterness and blindness 
We are stuck in an infinite maze

We ridicule them because they cannot see?
We call them disabled!
They have a better sense of everything else,
They are not disabled, they are differently abled!

We say we aren't the same,
We say we are better than them
Remember well my people,
We may be different and we may be diverse
But we along with all of them are the universe

I agree with your words and thoughts.
"We say we aren't the same,
We say we are better than them
Remember well my people,
We may be different and we may be diverse
But we along with all of them are the universe"
One earth and one people. We must get along. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.

Beautifully written my friend. A very humble and caring poem. Everyone is different for a reason; our differences shouldn't divide us.

"They are not disabled, they are differently abled!"

This line says so much in so little words. Just because someone is different from what you are, it doesn't make them any less of a person. This is something a lot of people need to see, because humans are too quick to be cruel.
Great work!

Thanks a lot for sharing this, Sage. I agree with your point. Right now, the world is slowly eaten away by inequality, violence, war, and terror. We may be different but we are created equally. This poem is a good reminder for us all. You could become a good advocate of equality, Sage. Well done! :)
