This is for Archia's new contest !

The poem is about different mentalities of different people. Unity is needed for a better society. Mental health mainly depends peoples' mentalities..................

Hope you'll enjoy !!!

Unconscious lives

Never see the lights

Why don't you get

They mentally regret


Stressful lives - to sacrifice others

Whole day work - to make family prosper


Overwhelming sadness

Heartwarming stories

Asked to be happy

But illusion feels snappy


Mentality of greedy man - searching for funders

Mentality of poor man - try to control their hunger


You and them, the way we think

May be different, but we all can

Chase the racism, bring the unity

Let's integrate as one big family

A short and sweet poem! You have briefly explained how the people all around the world worry about their particular needs. As you have mentioned, mostly the poor people always worry about their family's hunger. But, the welthy ones always search for money!
This is a beautiful poem, with heart touching words..
The message you are trying to give from this poem is nice. We don't have to care about the race of people. We all are humans. We all have red blood. So, why are we categorizing ourselves??

But, it was a bit confusing when I read your last verse for the first time. Might be my fault. If you can edit it people will understand it clearly..

Anyway, I wish you all the best for your future and with the contest!!

This is an interesting poem. Short and to the point, I can appreciate that. It tackles a very important issue. Unity is important and skin color shouldn't be something that decides someone's worth.
Good stuff.

First off, the topic you chose to address - racism in terms of economic inequality is amazing. You've portrayed the stark contrast between the economically affluent and the economically challenged people very well. The struggles these challenged people go through have been brought out well since the start of the poem. My personal favorite is the last paragraph where you make the reader realize that apart from all these inequalities, we are all the same - the same fellow human beings who ought to look out for each other instead of trying to step on each other. "Let's integrate as one big family." is most definitely a wonderful message to end the poem with.

Thank you for your positive comment Shika. I hate racism (including bullying). They completely affect people's mentality. I wish you the best of luck =)

What a great topic. Being looked at negatively just because of the skin colour can shave and corrode one's self worth. And that can lead to and contribute to mental health issues for individus that are not strong mentally.
I like it when you said "the way we think may be different [...], let's integrate as one big family". Yes, let's, don't make the differences separate us. Good poem Diya :)

It is sad that racism is still such a big issue in today's world but it is. It would be wonderful if the world wasn't full of such problems Your poem nicely captured the problem and there is such a division between rich and poor. Some of the sentences were a little confusing, like 'why don't you get'- I'm not sure what they're getting or what it's meant to mean. Your main point still came across well, and it's a very important point. It would be wonderful if we could all be one big family.
