why can't we

why can't we see
the bigger picture
why can't we see
other human figures

why can't we all
just get along
why can't we all
make each other strong

day by day-night by night
we hate and hate-fight and fight
day by day-night by night
we live without-peace in sight

gangs and war
hatred and violence
years go by
and still no silence

why can't we learn
to love and laugh
why can't we learn
to let the past wars be the last

why can't we be
each other's crutches
why can't we be
without grudges

why can't we live
without harm and hatred
why can't we live
without words so tainted

words can kill, they often do
when they're said-we have no clue
they hurt real bad and stick like glue
hatred forms and that's when we lose

why can't we all
just get along
why can't we all
make each other strong

why can't we see
the bigger picture
why can't we see
other human figures

    I love this poem Skyler, this is terrific and filled with so much direction that we should all follow, it would be a great world if we did. Beautifully crafted. Hugs, Gail
