When We Finally See The Light



People of Earth are totally amazing The ingenuity of the human mind Ain't no animal in this whole wide world As unique, we're one of a kind Pride in the achievements of us homo sapiens We'll soon be travelling to the stars Making regular excursions back and forth Meeting little green men from Mars A bright new future and a brand new start Maybe this time we'll get it right Love and friendship throughout the lands When we finally see the light Must sound strange, somewhat delusional But believe me it just has to be The alternative is totally unacceptable To survive we must all be free It's totally amazing how far we've come Since man first began to dream A time of peace lies just round the corner When happiness reigns supreme © Jack Ellison 2013

    I have to agree with David, down below, on this one...this poem needs to get out and beyond this site! So many people in this world really need to hear your amazing words that you have so perfectly brought together for all of us to read! I am so very impressed by your insight within this poem that you hope that we as homo sapiens would unify and be free and enjoy life together in peace! I just wish this would be true one day! Maybe you could be our President of Poets and lead us! Great work!!
