United for Change - a Blog Action Day poem on inequality

This is a guest blog, posted on behalf of one of the three winners of Oxfam's Blog Action Day competition.

Speaking a common theme,
inequality, for justice,
a single voice, together,
people united
for change
for our planet

Speaking on message
for a day at least, together,
remembering the earth
upon which we dwell
sharing a vision, a hope,
for a better tomorrow

Speaking up now, together,
before we lose even more
acting and writing
so no one forgets
we need all of us
everyone’s commitment
for our planet, for all of us
