No Man's Land
For ages we have seen the plight of men,
The struggle for freedom, food, land and home.
'They are foreigners, strangers,migrants,trouble makers.Close the borders on them'
'They are under privileged, hungry, homeless.Open the gates for them'
For some , Reason got in the way of compassion.
For some, Compassion got in the way of reason.
Neither was wrong.
But as much as reason struggled to save those around him,
In the end it was compassion that kept humanity alive.
