If Only

It's day one of the rest of our lives Beginning as it usually does But this one seems a little bit different The old world is all abuzz It's all abuzz with great excitement Something's about to take place Has this old world finally realized a truth We're destroying the human race Since the very beginning of time it seems Wars have forever been fought Over land, religion and ideologies In a web of destruction we're caught A day of awakening is about to take place We have finally seen the light From this day on wars will be abolished Peace is finally in sight Am I dreaming out loud? Can this be true? Pinch me to make sure I'm awake Let's hope this time it's more than a dream But reality for all our sakes! © Jack Ellison 2013

    It's nice to see your deeper and more solemn side every once in a while. It's in our nature to cause conflict, to reject the truth, to live our lives in temporal pleasures, never knowing or even understanding, the joy of living for the eternal things! Sad but true... IF ONLY love and kindness dominated hate and conflict... you have a wonderful mind Jack!

    I think you dream Jack, albeit good for humanity it makes money and people get rich of others misery. We live in a world where there isn't enough poetry like this to remind some they are so human after all. You pack this with a punch! Lizzie

    Sorry... Wrong... And we're destroying our countries from within. Education and research are being decimated by our governments. And not just by government money cuts either. Stupid policies, politics that don't work, and rules that destroy what we have. Jack they need us! They need our fun, laughter, and insight to carry the common person thru... We're treasures... for sure to keep them laughing thru the craziness! Write on MY MAN!
