Humanity And History

Humanity and History

Every generation has its geniuses.
Every age has its tragedies.
Every era is a reflection of humanity.
Every time births its heroes and villains.

The old are critical of the younger.
The young are inflamed with pride.
The young are looking up to ancestry.
The old stay hopeful for progressive progeny.

The endless cycles of our history,
begging us to learn to live free,
begging us to find ways to peace,
require age to become irrelevant,
as every voice and hand is needed,
for the call to action must be heeded,
working everyone together toward
the moments where we move forward.
