We Are One On One Planet   5 comments


Sometimes life is unpredictable.
It dictates things that you do not want to pursue,
nor do you wish to listen to.
But no matter how we resist life,
it won’t allow itself to lay unappreciated
and devalued for a long time.

For each day we live on this planet,
each breath we took when were awake
and each silent breath when we are asleep,
life is already in its existence.

For life is within us,
it envelops us in everything that we do.
It is there, silent and yet overbearing,
when we took our own paths,
when we mold our own destiny,
and when we choose wise and unwise decisions.

Decisions that might or might not
affect the way our life will be.
For no matter what path we choose,
life is always there.

Life is the essence of life.
Life is a God-given gift bestowed upon humankind.
Life is our life.
Without life, humanity would not have existed,
I would not have existed.

Life gives us the freedom to choose,
to see things in its pure goodness,
but above all, life gives us the ability to live on this planet.
For it is life that we found each other. For it is in life that we are one.

We are not only citizens in our own countries
but we are citizens of the world.
We are here because of life,
and we are here because we have life.
Live life to its fullest form.
Thank God for bestowing upon us life. Life is life.

    This posting first appeared in December 2014. As we end 2020, “We Are One On This Planet” should serve as a reminder that we are all in this world together. — kenne


  3. Hi, kenne, This is not just beautiful but also a powerful poem that celebrates life and unity on this planet!
    “Life is always there”, “silent and yet overbearing”, and “without life, humanity would not have existed”.
    For it is in “life that we found each other. For it is in life that we are one” and also “we are not only citizens in our own countries
    but we are citizens of the world”.
    I always learn not to take life or people in my life for granted! Let’s not forget that “we are all in this world together”! Thanks, kngoctran

  4. This is a great poem, and a perfect antidote to the vitriol that I just encountered after visiting Twitter. I wish voices like this poet’s got more attention, because maybe then more people would realize that we’re all in this together.
