The gift of human rights

What a great

and wondrous gift

is the endowment

of basic human rights.


This make all humans people,

people with the same need for protection,

people with the equal desire for

security and access,

happiness and success.


When these rights are eroded away,

so is the protection,

so is the security,

so is the access to all their needs,

so is the potential for happiness

and so is the possibility of success.


When we affirm this wondrous gift

of equity and justice,

we not only build the lives of others

we also affirm the truth

that we are all human,

all equal in our oneness,

all capable of great things

if given the opportunity

to actualise ourselves.
