The poem(s) are below...

if the doves could sing

If the doves could sing
They would sing about water that runs down the river
The river of peace
The peace that reigns even when the rains bring the trains of disappointment
Disappointment I said?
When the appointment with trust was in vain
But you still retain the main root, the dream
The root I said?
Yes the root, the dream
Because the dream is like the beam though sometimes it seems deam but its 
what lights on you
Keeps you going and holds you like the roots
If the doves could sing 
They would sing about the moutains that rest
About the trees that protect mother earth
The tress that are home to the birds
The birds I said?
Yes the birds
That sing to remind us of a new day
To remind us that the night is over
That peace has the might
And the knight inside us should continue to fight
To remind us that the failures of  yesterday should not be the kings of the great 
mind empire
Because then it's heir will be dispear
So repair the pieces
And like the birds starve worry
And sing like it was never night
