"2015 & Beyond in Science & Arts"

Poetry - Nov. 1, 2006 - NYC

Shame of Humanity 
Poetic Diary - 3

Bircan ÜNVER
Written for the "2015 & Beyond in Science & Arts" program.

Dedicated to:

In Asia, in Far East, in Latin America,
in the heart of Europe,
in the Middle East, and
in the heart of Africa,
             where it has been also defined as the "Killing Fields"
             children and women have been raped
on a daily basis on the "Killing Fields",
             over 4 million people killed in Democratic Republic of the Congo WW-II in Africa for 8 years..
             over 2 million children have been in sex trafficking yearly*
             who mostly die at 11!*
this ongoing mass destruction of humanity is:

by Human to Human,
             Man to Man,
             Woman to Woman
             Man to Woman or
             Woman to Man
             Youth to Youth,
             Country to country,
             Continent to continent for several millennia,
Having a desire for confiscating
from that never ending betrayal and curse...
where inner peace has never seeded!

wondering who has been backing this up for too long,
who are those using and making profit over children,
over rapes, over killings,
over artificially created,
             never ended ethnic conflicts,
over human lives by the use of war,
             or nuclear bomb tests?

How long longer more will we remain as the "mass",
             as the passive audience  --as a crowd,
             while we keep paying for those commercial,

             live broadcasting costs,
             and the cost of death and war?

We are watching these as news/entertainment show
          at every hour on TV channels..
Why are we so ignorant to all what's going on besides our backyards?
And, how have we become
             so selfish,
             so egocentric,
             so money, or power, or career, or fame hungry?

This has been my main curiosity for sometime!

In the name of protecting one another,
collaborations and partnering take place in that "killing",
and "exploiting business"
whereas billions and trillions of dollars have been allocated under different
justifications in every year...
                      while millions are dying from hunger
                      while millions are dying from AIDS
                      while all human and natural resources have been
                                                                             horribly wasted,
which has been much more worse than in any century of the human history...

instead of Children,
instead of Peace,
instead of Human Developments,
             hundreds of billions of dollars
             allocated to nuclear and mass destruction
             to wars, weapons, and killings...
hatred has been deeply seeded,
             and expanded in all times,
cumulatively these have been a major threat to the existence of humanity on

In similar plots with different masking,
Humanity and Earth has been bleeding very badly for too long!

Seeing through this crystal ball has been a shocking,
             and very hopeless one,
although an eye-opening comprehension to other parts of the world..
which has led me to think beyond this time,
             beyond this century,
             perhaps beyond this millennium,
             with a deep nostalgia,
                          and belief in greatness for humanity.
