Universal Harmony on Justice

by. Sabeena Wahid, Grade10: Deira International School

Look out for each other.
Die for one another.
We bleed the same colour.

That was the infamous dream;
Now we’re trapped, grounded to a retched scheme.
A scheme of evil, horrid and unforsaken way,
See the grim horror, looking on in dismay.

Stormed in, a surprise, waving your flag;
Facing down at us, eyes gleaming like a stag.
You killed us dark, savage, suppressing the minority;
You smiled, fair skinned, greeting the majority.

Black and white, colours sparsely separated.
Loved ones, look around, we're all segregated.
Cries, tears, whimpers, screaming for freedom;
Control our ways, we know we don't need 'em.

They say we're living in harmony, helping each other;
All I see is disparity, the disapproval of the mixing colour.
We cannot love together, we cannot learn together.
The world is not at peace, it will weep forever.

Unless we stop the fighting, stop the hate and crime.
We want to love as you do desire, in patience and time.
We see the dream, see the hope, locked up inside;
Let it free, send it out, let the anger subside.

Look out for each other.
Die for one another.
We bleed the same colour.
