Ocean of Humanity Poem

Do not lose faith in humanity

It is a vast, limitless, spread out ocean

It does not get dirty with a few drops of dirt at one end

On the other end, 

look at the sparkling waves gushing forward to cover it!

No evil human powers can destroy its beauty

They only cry for our attention and invite us

To advance with force and dignity

Do not shake with fear at a mere bomb blast

Or several gun shots

Rise with determination like these waves

Do not stop as these are only warnings sent in lots

Move with intention to clean and heal 

The naked wounds of humanity

Do not blame anyone as the evil ones are 

Also part of this humanity

Designed and destined to be with us to test our humanity!

Ignore them and learn to live with patience and power to heal

It is within you, O humanity

Humanity is an ocean, life-giving and eternal

Can few drops of evil destroy this glorious unity?
