THOUGHTS ABOUT HUMANITY

  author: Anonymous

 

Have compassion for peoples’ diversity

            Knowing that “differences” are not unique

                        But, rather, opportunities to learn from one another

 

Understanding that peace is more than an idea

            Initiates thought that becomes the catalyst

                        Necessary to change an idea to reality

 

Monitor your own heartbeat to measure its true sincerity

            Never offering to give life’s blood to another

                        Until yours is free of resentment and hatred

 

Answer those queries which give the greatest reward to mankind

            Demanding nothing of others you can not give yourself

                        Giving to others all that is yours to give

 

Nurturing is a quality necessary to the human spirit

           Never hidden to be kept selfishly, but, ready to respond

                        When humanity suffers from great devastation

           

Instigate and motivate changes when they improve man’s condition

Extended inaction leaves men paralyzed with cranial atrophy

                        Apathetic and vulnerable with no resistance against injustice

 

Tolerance is born through experiencing and accepting our own shortcomings

           Stimulating thought to thereby accept the faults of others

                        And apply liberal amounts of forgiveness whenever needed

 

Yearn for a world of peace amongst nations and mankind

           Seeking always the road that leads to the solution

                        Rather than the road that leads around the problem

 

 

 

Author’s note:

 

See humanity through eyes of faith and hope-

                        Hope being the torch that lights your way

Love the entire poem and its wonderful sentiments, Amber. And the lines that stand out for me:

Instigate and motivate changes when they improve manís condition
Extended inaction leaves men paralyzed with cranial atrophy

This Is To Me The Divine Knowledge of Selflessness
in an Earthly world realm of possessiveness & greed & temptations
The Spiritual Realm Is A Complete Energy of Being & Giving of Divinity & Selfless Love
Thats what this piece reminds me of, many people do not get that Love is freedom & does not harm or hurt, nor control.
