We are the World

The world is now consumed with an insatiable need to categorize and label all men and women, but is this correct? London artist and poet, Elle Smith, writes this reflective poem which asks whether it is right to label and categorise people. The poem is called 'We are the World' and it certainly questions profiling people:

 

We are the World

 

You gave me a label,

that’s the start of the end,

when into different groups,

you try to categorize all men.

A man is a human being,

which should be enough for most.

He is not an inanimate object,

or dare I say it, even a ghost.

Humanity is the highest form,

never degrade this utter awe.

The beauty of the human race,

is that each person is unique,

with a heart in the same place.

Elle Smith perfectly sums up those emotions in the quaint, contemporary poem - 'Fireworks Inside Me'. This original poem shows just how explosive love can truly be!

This original poem suggests that there are Colours of Love, and that as Elle Smith recites in beautiful verse that love traverses different stages, or the full colour spectrum as the love within a relationship deepens. From the beginning to complete and everlasting love, we go through a vibrant spectrum of colours:
