I came across this poem recently written by Alfred Lord Tennyson in the late 1800’s. I understand it was written in response to the French Revolution and yet how appropriate the words still remain to the fight for equality and the ‘insanity’ that we are still seeing and experiencing over 100 years later across all of our Continents….
Will we ever move on to accept our differences and live peacefully alongside each other?
Beautiful city, the centre and crater of European confusion,
O you with your passionate shriek for the rights of an equal
How often your Re-volution has proven but E-volution
Roll’d again back on itself in the tides of a civic insanity!
Or will we continue to fight and kill each other, disregarding that we are all just humans living alongside each other, on our planet Earth, with our different cultures, faiths and beliefs, until humanity is finally destroyed…..
I hope not – what do you think?
