A Christmas Wish



It's day one of the rest of our lives Beginning as it usually does But this one seems a little bit different The 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 beginning of recorded time 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 2012

    Unfortunately us humans still have a tough road ahead. Mostly our own doing. Let's savor the moments of light that cross our paths ( your poems included). Enjoy the day Jack. I wrote a Christmas poem as well today. It is a very special Day.

    "Unfortunately us humans still have a tough road ahead"... sure can't argue with that my friend! At my age, I doubt I'll be around when and if it happens! Heading on over to check out yours! Jake
