I LIVE FOR THE DAY - A Visual Video Poem

POTW 12th May 2019

Thank you for visiting my third Visual Video Poem, more or less a continuation of my previous poem – ‘The Dreamer’
(I invite you to view the complete production effects and the superb narration by Kelvin on the video above)

I LIVE FOR THE DAY when faith in ourselves will unshackle old beliefs I LIVE FOR THE DAY belief in The One Spiritual Energy will be redeemed I LIVE FOR THE DAY that armed conflict against so-called enemies Is declared pointless and therefore unnecessary will be deemed I LIVE FOR THE DAY when wizened skin a thing of beauty will be perceived Our elders revered and adhered Their words of wisdom respected and believed I LIVE FOR THE DAY when people will recognise the power of natural curing And not be influenced by the greedy Pharmaceutical manipulating I LIVE FOR THE DAY when equality by all will be shared Power segregation abolished ~ racial discrimination repaired I LIVE FOR THE DAY when schools will encourage children’s gifts and abilities Rather than stick to outdated systems that stifles innovation and possibilities I LIVE FOR THE DAY when Man will adapt to our Earth a more reverent conservation Our steadfast purpose toward environmental change And Mother Nature becomes our commitment to her preservation I LIVE FOR THE DAY … By Maria Williams Copyright © Maria Williams Video arrangement, production, direction and compilation: Ron Williams Video editing, sound mixing, graphics: Jayne Hartano (Our very own Lariese.com Art Director) Voice over: Kelvin Music: Our Future Composer: Peder B.

Yes, I pray that day will come sooner rather than later. This is why I started the group, Poetry of Peace, on Facebook where I have shared this beautiful poem and video...since I see the little boxes at the top of the page are back! And another FAV...naturally! :D P.S. Congrats on another POTD.

Wonderfully done. I would encourage you to you tube. Dr. Wallach. and get a hold of "Dead Doctors don't lie." Also, schools never teach us to make money. The system is geared to make us workers to the system.

Just beautiful, Maria. I live for the day too. It would be so wonderful if the whole world loved the whole world. I especially enjoyed the background music in this lovely video and just seeing how beautiful our world is brought me to tears. I wish I could share this like you requested too but I see no way of doing that any more. There used to be something at the top of the page with which to do that. Anyway, another FAVE. *soup mail

"I lived for the day that armed conflicts against so-called enemy is declared pointless and therefore unnecessary will be deemed"... Those are the lines I embraced among all others, for I pain the pains.

My dear friend Maria, you are an enlightening visionary and your poem illuminates hearts and minds. I appreciate the power of your golden pen to inspire a more humane future. You bestow beautiful ideals that pulse with possibilities and feel like they can move beyond dreams to come true as our new reality. 'I live for the day' with you, my sweet friend. Precious and potent poetry. A masterful production. Warmest wishes and love always.. ~Susan

Such a lovely poem this is, we all want to see the world as we perceive it in our dreams, but the sad reality is that many of these things will never be achieved, I too want to see a world which is free from suffering, but guess that day will never come, anyways, your two poems here certainly made my night, I was just going to bed and realize that I forgot to read your poem, I am glad that I come across this one, for now all night I will have lovely dreams of a perfect world. Have a nice day
