How we could change the world

When will people learn this thing
That everything is one 
We must learn to love, not hate
We must throw away all guns
And learn to love all things that live
Put forgiveness in our hearts
Stop wanting always to fight each other
And let perfection start

We have this planet cut in pieces
With countries everywhere
As politicians wave their flags
And only wars they share
As they make us hate each other
And never teach us bliss
They just look for greed and power
This is the way it is

We need leaders with wisdom
To make our world feel grand
Instead of all this competition
Wherever there is land
We need to push hatred away
And hold our hands in peace
As all the horror in this world
We will give all this release

We do not need those ancient books
We need to look within
Then we will see just who we are
Then love it will begin
Then hearts would sing a symphony
And glory would be here
Then every day we’ll wake from sleep
And life will be so dear

Sidney, the perfect poem for today! Love not needing division, as you are right; the more divided we are, the less love. Also looking within rather than ancient books. Wisdom personified as far as I am concerned. Love is the key, love and unity and trust; not hate. Well done. I love it that you posted this on Christmas Day. Wow! Terrific! Happy Holidays!

Hi Caren, the trouble with this world is that everything is competition straight from childhood. Instead of teaching love and kindness, everything is about being better than the other person. I can always see this on the sites that I have been on. How can one compete with writing, Just write from the heart I say that's all that counts. I thank you so much for your kind comments, my friend. I sincerely Appreciate them....Have a wonderful Christmas....Peter
