Diversity - Earth

With a focus on tolerance and world peace, this was my digital painting portraying unity. A graphic I titled Paperdoll Diversity.

World Peace
Mystifying beauty
Captivating dreams
Never-ending rainbows
A world so full of dreams

These are misled thoughts
Our world is not like this
Hate has scoured our minds
Hate will cause our deaths

Looking to the future
Right now seem very bleak
War is now an issue
Peace is for the meek

Ignorance of man
To look beyond ones faults
Has caused a misconception
Of others like ourselves

A join of hand and heart and will
Would put and end to this
The same value placed on others
Like we place upon ourselves
Would end the hate and violence
That’s tearing out our hearts

When this is done
Our world’s complete
The pain and hardship gone
And once again, just like before
Peace will lead us on

    'Until' by Max Merckenschlager
    Until the last is fed and clothed and safe in friendly arms,
    until the fitful sleeps of fear aren't shattered by alarms,
    until inoculation has their killers by the scruff,
    until we've met their basic needs, we haven't done enough.

    Until the universal laws aren't honoured in the breach,
    until religions' followers all practice what they preach,
    until we cherish children whether brindle, black or buff,
    until we've made them family, we haven't done enough.

    Until our leaders demonstrate it's economic sense
    to budget aid for others as our paramount defence,
    until we view equality as more than words of puff,
    until we treat the symptoms too, we haven't done enough.

    Until a life of freedom and the tools with which to learn,
    are seen as rights of everyone - not privileges to earn,
    until we've bled a little and, by choice, we've had it tough,
    until we've changed the way it is, we haven't done enough.
    --Max Merckenschlager
