Yet some people will never have one
invaded by a super power
they are only issued a flimsy piece of paper
that cannot be used for travel
Exiled from their homelands
their invaders ensure that nobody recognises them
unless they acquiesce to their demands!
Can you even begin to imagine life without yours?
and to the plight also of citizens from troubled lands – and developing countries like ours – who are always viewed with suspicion.
Others may have a passport from a troubled country
Suspicion aroused wherever they go
checked too often and regarded with fear
and continues with a clarion call
“Only global citizenship will allow free travel!
So no more flag and no more borders!
Recognise that there is only one human race
with many different tribes …”
echoing words spoken by my father so many many years ago to which alas I paid no heed, blind to his dream of no flags, no borders …. and there definitely can be no walls if we ‘‘open to each other with warm embrace? ”
Is this not the Kingdom of God on earth that our Saviour spoke of?
Let us resolve to actively live, and work and pray for that day, when the dream of One World, One Love, One Heart is realised.
