The takeoff point

Food, clothes and shelter

make people feel contented

The take off point

for fuelling of desires

which shapes people differently.


Onset of life,

you and I are all the same

till ambitions develop.

It may herd us together

or drive us all apart.


Empires, fiefdoms

geographical divides

all that separates us

makes us a master or slave

are individual dreams.


The genetic code


divide the world

what unites is the soul

see it as part of a whole.
