Eyes wide shut

I am looking at the world through closed eyes.
I see all the things that I wish were there.
It would be a world with no widows sighs.
Children would be taught to live without fear.
No profit from the misery of others.
Leader's first rule, "All are fed and housed".
A nation's goals, the same as its mothers.
A rivers run could not by dam be paused.
One's right to do no harm, the rulers too.
A warrior tests only other warriors.
The worst fallout would be the morning dew.
We move through a world without barriers.
Looking at the world through closed eyes means
that I can live only in my dreams
