Social Justice Poetry

When Shall It Be | A Social Justice Poem by Ubosic Chuks

When shall all wars end
I ask myself.
When shall harmony be the trend
Like a stack of books on a shelf.

When shall you write me a song
In the rhythm of peaceful co-existence
To show me that I also belong
To this brotherhood, in all essence.

I bear the semblance of an enemy
You take to thought,
You consider me not worth a penny
And thus treat me as naught.

I’m a son of mother earth
We all came together
So why constantly wish me death
Like I’m not your brother.

When shall all wars end
I ask myself
When shall harmony be the trend
Like a stack of books on a shelf.

We are one family
Let love be our watchword,
Let’s co-exist peacefully
All in one accord.
