Our Nation

Our Nation

the roots of a nation
let us call it the Earth
seen from the Moon
a new perspective was birthed

this beautiful sphere
cloaked in water and land
had no divisions, no borders
drawn in the sand

there was freedom to flow
from one pole to another
the only restrictions might be
the seasons or weather

how can we ever
control lives’ migration
now we understand the whole Earth
is our home and our nation?
