I wish

by | Aug 20, 2008 | Poetry | 1 comment

I wish this world that we live in
Could be a better place
Where people live in harmony
Regardless of colour, creed or race

I wish that all religions
Would learn to compromise
Accept the many beliefs we each have
Never questioning reasons why

I wish that politicians
Would give us actual proof
That the promises they make have our best interests at heart
And they can start by telling the truth

I wish that all our brave soldiers
Didn’t have to fight a war
Fuelled by religion and politics
That’s not worth dying for

I wish for no death and destruction
From dictators spreading their hate
Through poisoning the minds of young ones
Determining their fate

I wish that all of our children
Would be free and safe from harm
So that they can build a better world
Filled with love and peace and calm

I wish that all the Angels
In the skies so far above
Will always be there beside us
Protecting us with love

I wish that people would stop
And think about what they can do
To change this world into a better place
To help these wishes come true

What a wonderful world this would be
If all these wishes came true
All I can do is pray that they will
And hope you will do to

    SO prophetic in some ways considering what we are facing around the world today.

    Beautiful poem Michaela, thank you.
