I wrote this poem for all the people just to say that we can make our world a better place.

*Heal The World*

I remember a time when each day was long.

The world was a playground and my life a song.

With many years,I didnt care,

I didnt really think about the future and what waited there.

School was very fun and filled with delights.

I was playing eveydays and dreamming every nights.

I was young ans I didnt know about the world outside home.

Where tragedy,sorrow and murder could roam.

All I was seing were rainbows,blue skies and stars.

I looked past destruction and buildings and cars.

When I was a child,my biggest concern was me.

I had to be happy,proud and free.

But when I started growingup,darkness starts to set in;

My bright world has turned inyo concrete and tin.

Now,I see the violence that I didnt see past before.

People I know start to die and my heart really hits the floor.

Bad and deadly diseases claim people I love,

There are landfills bellow me and polution above.

I often think back when the world was a playground and life a game.

But unfortunatly,it wont be the same.

There are days when I just want to break down and howl,

I want it to give up to throw in the towel.

But I hold my head high and I push my way through.

I have so much to give and so mcuh to do.

I make a vow that Ill never quit and go hard,

Ill go on with a big smile and play every card.

Ill give all I can and help others and love.

I know that the strengh I dont have will come from above.

So people conme,take my hand and trough darkness we will sail.

If we join together and love each other,we never can fail.

We will remember to care,remember to feel,

And by believing and accepting the entire human race,our world WE will HEAL.
