Humanity Speaks

“The world of humanity is possessed of two wings: the male and the female. So long as these two wings are not equivalent in strength, the bird will not fly. Until womankind reaches the same degree as man, until she enjoys the same arena of activity, extraordinary attainment for humanity will not be realized; humanity cannot wing its way to heights of real attainment. When the two wings . . . become equivalent in strength, enjoying the same prerogatives, the flight of man will be exceedingly lofty and extraordinary.”~’Abdul-Baha

 

I am an eagle that longs to soar.

To lift myself up from the mire and clay

I long to fly high, for this I pray.

 

I am a hawk seeking true wisdom

To arise and see the truth of our common state.

I long to truly see our fate

 

I am a condor seeking to eliminate

To clean and rid the world of toxic masculinity

I long to make way for our unity.

 

I am the Hornbill that longs to build.

To work day and night to construct our torn nest

I long to create space so that we may rest

 

I am woman seeking to assist.

To bring about conditions that foster peace

I long to be all that I am that war may cease

 

I am humanity that longs to be free

To see woman and man working together in all things.

I long for the function of both of my wings.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
