We are living in a world filled with Chaos
Constantly searching on, violence taught
In books, education; history
Weapons, weapons, 
I declare my misery
For if not taught these things-
instead compassion, caring, subtle things
teach of peace
A brighter day
A new dawn
for a new age
under the sun
Where blood does not flow;
the effects of someones trigger
the innocent at the end of an angry gun
Can we agree when we disagree
that we are humans indeed?
Yes, We all have good and bad in us
Please tell me, my brother will not die for his difference?
Can we come to an understanding as people?
Not as politicians..
Not as Americans...
But blood, bone and spirit freely moving upon this Earth
for greater good
Could you save the world with one word?
I bet the world would be a better place, if you tried.............

    Very beautiful poem, loved it. Politicians are simply people working for society, the reason we have so many bad ones, is that the good people do nothing instead of get involved. I have been in very bad places and situations, and I have also seen miracles of beautiful human behavior, making this world a better place is like weeding a garden, it never ends! Great write!!
