A little poem about certain aspects of our world.

I often look at the ways of society

And think how it has lost its dignity.

People living in frivolous ways

When they escape the sun’s rays

At night we see a different life

Surrounded by troubles and strife

And nothing can be done to stop this.

But if I had only one wish

I’d see this world pull together

Where the biggest worry is the weather

Not that you could be shot or cut

By some loony night-time knife wielding nut

We could walk down the streets and forget about fear

Without constantly watching the rear

Live in a world where all is good

No evil left, wish for this I would.

If love could truly conquer all

So no one else would have to fall

By the hands of so much hate

No one would have to dream of that heavenly gate.

A beautiful thought :) It's nice to know that other people contemplate society in this way too.

I think we can all agree a world like this is one we want. It's somewhat melancholic, wishing for something you know will never happen. Great poem
