The idealist

The idealist

People look at him, and say
“You’re an idealist, man
You live in a utopia
Hey, don’t you understand
That your ideas have no real worth
In societies like ours”
They tell him “Stop your dreaming man”
With looks all kind of sour

The man, he knows that his ideals
Are hard to realize
But some few have to counterbalance
Societies ugly lies
One has to see the other side
The side folk fail to see
One day, the few might be the many
That’s the way of destiny

He knows he’ll keep his high ideals
That one day from his truth
A loving missile might be built
That will blast right through the roof
Of greed and power and avarice
Then all might get their share
Song and laughter will rule hearts
And love be everywhere

    You never give up, Peter! Many things are going to pot, yet you stay positive, hoping that one day this world and its inhabitants will get better. May many others have your same attitude. All the best my friend. // paul

    Peter, you are an idealist and I am too. Why think the worst and be sour on life. Find the beauty, the good, the noble and celebrate it!

    G'day Peter... You've hit the nail on the head. Greed and its accomplices will use their wealth and power to stomp on common sense. Thank you Peter - Lindsay
