Being a human being is to love everyone
Don’t get confused about being a Christian
Who is to be a Super Being, a great Human
Please, at all cost, avoid or avert all confusion
Being a human is to admire and care for God’s creation
(We all are, even the demons)
Please ignore the backstabbing pundits who pretend
Prejudge, discriminate, criticize, show-off, cry out, demand
And audaciously holler all types of sermons
It is absolutely crucial to love and respect the offspring
Of Mother Nature or God at all times: in fall, winter, spring
And, of course, in summer. Regardless of the color
Of the leaves and its shapes, we’re the same, nobody is better
We came on earth poor and nude with nothing in the coffer
And we shall leave this planet like a destitute augur
With an inordinately frozen, stoned and made-up face
With no blank smile, no modern style and no gloomy grimace
Vanity quintessentially prevails as if humans were fools
Like manikins that are controlled by machines and tools.
P.S. I wrote this poem so we can think about each other. It’s up
To my readers to go deeper and deeper.
