Most of us take a passport for granted.
Mine testify to earlier travels
but now they seldom stamp it!
Visas are another story when residing abroad.

Yet some people will never have one
invaded by a super power
they are only issued a flimsy piece of paper
that cannot be used for travel

Exiled from their homelands
their invaders ensure that nobody recognises them
unless they acquiesce to their demands!
Can you even begin to imagine life without yours?

Others may have a passport from a troubled country
Suspicion aroused wherever they go
checked too often and regarded with fear
Only global citizenship will allow free travel!

So no more flag and no more borders!
Recognise that there is only one human race
with many different tribes.
Lets open to each other with warm embrace?

Daily Prompt:  Passport
