Citizenship

Is
The infinite canopy of responsibility
Under which
We home
Branch out
Love
Play with freedom
And at last
Die
In peace

  2. Citizenship is a responsibility that people need to take more responsibility for. Looking out for others with care and concern will get us the beginnings of peace.

  3. Peace is the word that stuck for me - i think that's what all human beings deserve wherever they maybe born - a clear and powerful poem

  5. There is no let up! The responsibility has to be expected and later accepted!

  6. This is lovely. I wish we would branch out more love, than our opinions.

  7. In all of the "Gimme", no one takes much responsibility.......I love the progression in your poem - a wonderful vision which would indeed bring peace, were it practiced.
