Humanty by Harmony-tree Hansen (Highly Commended)

Humans are such fickle creatures,
We say life is not fair
But then we turn on each other
And strip our homelands bare.

While some are drinking lemonade
In Hawaii, on the beach,
Others are fighting famine, hunger,
Wanting for food beyond their reach.

Its things like these that make me wonder
How humans came to be
The selfish, self-serving creatures
That today we all see.

The Broken-Hearted by Mysheka Field (Highly Commended)
