Freedom for All Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

Human Rights , Peace & Conflict , Globalization   Poetry


Again I observed all the oppression
That takes place in our world
I saw the tears of the oppressed
With no one to comfort them
The oppressors have great power
And the victims are helpless
So I almost concluded that the dead are better than the living

Then I observed
That most people are to success
By their envy of their neighbours
But this, too, is meaningless

I observed yet another example of meaningless in our world
This is the case of a man who is alone
Without a child or a brother
Yet who works hard to gain as much wealth as he can
But then he asks himself
Who am I working for
What am I giving up so much pleasure now
It is all so meaningless and depressing.

But then I also realised
That man is best motivated
In a challenging environment
Environment devoid of DEPRESSION
Environment devoid of OPPRESSION
A positive enviroment

I am motivated to create such
An enviroment where every one can say
And I welcome anyone
Ready to move with me
Together we are better.

Writer Profile

My name is Jinadu Babajide Oluwafemi.

'Jide is a reserved, quiet person. He likes to get to the bottom of things - curiosity is one of his strongest motives. He wants to know what holds the world together deep down inside. He does not really need much more to be happy because he is a modest person. Many mathematicians, philosophers and scientists belong to this type. He loathes contradictions and illogicalness; with his sharp intellect, he quickly and comprehensively grasps patterns, principles and structures. He is particularly interested in the fundamental nature of things and theoretical findings; for him, it is not necessarily a question of translating these into practical acts or in sharing his considerations with others. The analytical thinker likes to work alone; his ability to concentrate is more marked than that of all other personality types. He is open for and interested in new information.
