The drawing above I made some years ago. It depicts king Solomon, or Shlomo in Hebrew. Real or not real, he has gone down in history mainly for his wisdom. I use that as another metaphor for the wisdom we all have to use in days such as these. On Thursday, April the 1st 2004 I wrote a poem called Human Democracy about the situation in the world. It is just as valid today, if not more. Here it is.
Too many of us humans are unfair in our judgements,
we never try to learn of other peoples’ lifes,
or listen to the thoughts of fellow humans’ statements,
if they are strange to us – we kill them with our knives.
Tribal war, or civil war, or war between some nations,
from this so many suffer around our fragile earth.
Despotic rulers gain from unfair regulations,
the prejudice and ignorance give hatred ruthless birth.
The prejudiced ideas of things we do not know
are based on evil rumours when something bad is done.
The knowledge of the facts are often very low,
with common suppositions so many of us run.
When unfair things do happen, then people will react,
the unjust rules and cruelty make people sad and mad.
The power-hungry statesmen between them make a pact,
that common laws of justice they never really had.
Democracy is meant to give the people justice,
and rules that are acceptable by people with a heart.
But many laws of this kind are never put in practice,
because so many governments just put them on a chart.
The racism is a problem between so many groups,
the racist see the others as creeps of lower value.
In certain cases too they send their ruthless troops,
but their ideas so twisted are certainly untrue.
Instead of see the fact how many common traits,
which link us all together, with culture laid on top,
that we are same and different – diversity he hates.
If this is never realised – the hatred will not stop.
The colour of our skin is merely superficial,
inside we are the same – of common human race,
To stop the racist war – this view should be official,
respect for different ways to earn the Lord’s full grace.
Accept our ways and cultures, abolish our sin,
oppose the unfair things – in every single land!
Defeat the worldly violence, let human fairness win,
avoid the hateful thoughts – stretch out a helping hand!
I hope that these words will seap down into our hearts and souls and make us become better people, as far as it might be possible, even though we are imperfect in our personalities.
