This is a poem about humanity and what time has led it to.

Earth, it's a wonderful place

Look up and you see the stars shine,

Look down and to find nothing but crime.

Distorted by Humanity and worn down,

Divided by color - White, Black and brown.

This is what life has become, so live it to the fullest,

Tread with caution or get struck by a bullet.

War and Hate in the name of Religion.

This isn't what Religion is,

Live in Peace and Harmony, that's where your heaven is.

Though broken but hopeless, not yet,

You haven't seen Humanity at its best.

We Built Roads, we Built Buildings, we Built Cars,

We are quite brilliant in that way, we even went on Mars.

So hold on, take a second, think

Of what we can achieve as a whole, when we're in sync.

Let's make this world a better place,

Correct your wrongs and learn from your mistakes.

You still haven't seen Humanity at its best,

Lay down little one and rest.

Tomorrow will be a new day and a new start,

Just do one last thing, live in the Present, not in the Future or the Past.
