CSR matters
People with mental segregation,
Racism, sexism, and discrimination
Drugs, rape, and violation,
Oh, what a generation!

When quarter of the world is fighting for peace,
the rest don’t want the war to cease.
When quarter of the world is fighting for gender equality,
the rest believe that this is extreme frivolity.
When quarter of the world is fighting for quality education,
the rest don’t care about the future generation.
When quarter of the world suffers from starvation,
the rest let them suffer the prostration.
When quarter of the world suffers from poverty,
the rest don’t care less about wasting money.
When quarter of the world is afraid of drinking water or eating fish,
the rest continue to pollute, letting them languish.
Unfortunately, the world we live in can be interpreted as an unbalanced scale where the heavier side is the one that doesn’t want the war to cease, or the side that wastes money, or the one that let the others suffer the consequences of their mistakes…; it is the side that doesn’t want peace. The above poem (written by me) answers this question: “Why aren’t we achieving the Sustainable Development Goals?”. This is the sad truth that we, as people, try to ignore. My dream, as well as many others, is to see this world in a different perspective. The perspective that doesn’t have an alternative; the one that we will all have. It is the one that views the world as a peaceful planet, with all the SDGs achieved.
The SDGs are all linked together to form a web that can’t be achieved if we, as humans, as citizens of the planet “Earth”, as leaders for the next generation, don’t put our hands together. It might sound impossible, but I personally believe that it is possible. When reaching the moon, or travelling using luxurious machines sounded impossible hundreds of years ago, humans made those dreams possible. This operation will take time, but we have already wasted so much, so starting now seems too late, but we still got a chance to make this huge leap towards a perfect planet. Movements like the “Corporate Social Responsibility” that is followed by companies and businesses are having an impact when it comes to achieving the SDGs. Tiny changes in our daily routine will affect our day, and so does every small movement made to help achieve those goals. When companies, businesses, etc….. follow the CSR, they literally save thousands of lives every single day. More companies should be like Microsoft, Google, Walt Disney, and many more when it comes to following the CSR. The CSR aims to positively change the world, and so do those companies that don’t only strive for success, but also think about the future generations. I believe that every business should follow the CSR!
One of the most important SDGs that we need to attain in this period of time is the “Partnerships for the goals”. We are living a time where countries and nations need to put their hands together. Developed countries should put more effort in aiding the poorer countries to get out of this crisis and look forward to a brighter future. Countries like Argentina, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Greece, Spain, etc.… should make more partnerships with other countries and help them. In my opinion, this is the fastest and only way to achieve the sustainable development goals (maybe not all of them, but the ones that truly matter in the meanwhile). While counties like Spain are wasting food (tomato festival/food fight), other countries are dying from starvation. Food should never be wasted, but instead, consumed wisely. Why are there counties that waste food? Why can’t they trade crops/give poorer countries if they have so much? This, to me, sounds insane. For whatever reason, this shouldn’t be accepted nor ignored. Where is the fairness in such cases? Why do governments allow such a thing to be done? The lack of food in poor counties, especially in Africa, cause a lot of people to suffer from deficiency diseases. Why is this happening? Why can’t we stop wasting time and take action towards making this world better? Spain is a developed country. Why can’t they simply give excess food to the poor, undeveloped countries? This is not impossible. How can we stand such a crime that is happening before our eyes and not speak up? This is a crime that we need to put an end to. Spain can make partnerships with other countries and help others. If one of the most developed countries waste food, who will help the poor ones?
We can never accomplish the SDGs without putting our problems aside and collaborating with each other. Let us start changing simple things in our lives that will make a change! Let us think and become innovative to reach those goals! Let us stop wasting time!

  33. Mr. Shoe on says:

    I like your rhyming scheme and content, it’s very lyrical.

    However, I think the more depressing question to ask is: what would happen if global war/poverty/disease did cease?

    Without preventative checks on population, life on the planet would be unsustainable. For us to have what we have, others must not.

    Until we move onto a post-scarcity model, there must be an imbalance to maintain life as we know it.

    But those thoughts are for those of us jaded old people. You young people should find the answers and solutions to the problems that we couldn’t solve.
