I Need

I Need.......
-------------------
I need a magic needle
To sew,
Abundant love with my heart,
Dignity with my society,
And a package of peace
With my country as a whole!
Dear friends,
This is my goal.

I need a magic soap
To clean,
Rage from my soul,
Passion from my society,
And ferocity of violence
from my country as a whole!
Dear friends,
This is my goal.

I need a magic brush
To paint,
Vicious glimpses of terrorism,
Enormity of corruption,
Darkness of dirty politics,
And the eye of poverty
for my country as a whole! 
Dear friends,
This is my goal.
----------------------------

It can definitely feel as though we need some magic to cure those things ... otherwise they'd just keep on repeating themselves over and over! Perhaps the magic starts from within ... good first poem post, Manmath ... straight from the get-go, stating your concerns through verse.

Hello Manmath, Thanks for gratiously commenting on my attempt at art very late in life. I'm a disciple of Mystic Urdu poet Sant Darshan Singh Ji and singer Mata Harbhajan Kaur Ji and current Master Sant Rajinder Singh Ji of Science of Spirituality. Something drew me to enter Trader Joe's contest! Hug back.

You need not worry here about exploring your potential. You will receive nothing but praise and encouragement. I have written HOLI MOLI for you, just now. All the best, Jean.

Manmath, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
