A Better World

I write these words with a better world on my mind,
A world where life has regained it's value over vanity,
Where good has regained it's strength over bad,
Where love has transformed hate into a beautiful flower garden,
Where man-kind cherish the blood,rather than judge the skin,
Where children love and respect their peers,parents and elders,
Where women express their minds,rather than their bodies,
Where men the soldiers of the Almighty,rise and take a stand,
Where the care of Mother Earth becomes the priority of every human,
Let's put our political,spiritual,greed and past differences into a boat,
The boat called Negativity is sinking,let's all watch it sink,
Now let's join hands and heart,promote love,care and positivity,
And watch the transformation of a new world,a better world...

    I Think this is a great write. I'm not big on the bible or organized religion. But I am very spiritual and believe strongly in a higher power(God). I share these feelings and I think it important we keep sight of them. Without our morals and ethics we lack what makes us human our humanity.

    I applaud your sentiments Richie, but half of what you dream of for this world will never be...not wanting to dampen your enthusiasm, but if the Bible be the truth, then we will see a lot worse before we see "The Better World". Then it won't be better of our own doing, but what is ordained to be. In the mean time though we can apply those things to ourselves, so individually we are a better person, collectively....won't happen. Excellent write my friend. One love. Joy Wells

    Nice one Richard. Trully, the world becomes unto us the potential we concieve of it. Even our own lives can shock us if we dare to think beyond the status-quo.
