Citizen of Earth

I am a Citizen of Earth. I am owned by no imaginary construct called a nation. I do not bow down before false idols built of words. I am no better than any other citizen and I am no less.

You can not rule over me by birth right made by a system of bribery. You can only be a equal if you have the courage to turn your back to the lust of power. You must open your heart to those that hate you to find the only true power.

I will not play games while one child knows pain. The web of lies can not trap me for I have seen the truth in the next generations eyes. I will fight for the future with words while others use war.
I will never forget but I'll find a way to forgive. I will love you even if you hate me.

I will give my pity freely to those that steal life, land and liberty. Imaginations so shallow that they can not see the greed they plant or the bitter fruit it will bear someday.

We are Citizens of Earth. We can do better.

Wonderful words - as ever - Robert. Re AWARD LOGO I simply copied and pasted from my sponsor's blog into my dashboard when creating the new post.

Thanks Joan

I'll try again soon on the award. I'm having some computer problems now that I need to fix.
