... I don't know what to wright...

If only everything were normal.

If only it was all alright.

If only there was a way, that I could change my sight.

See only the good, and welcome it too.

Maybe then, I could get through.

Black and white,

Good and bad,

Wrong and right,

Happy and sad.

If only it were that simple.

I wouldn't be so mad,

At the world for being what it is,

Instead my heart is iron clad.

In my eyes, it's unfathomable,

The war, and death, and fighting.

If I could have my way, I'd set about righting,

Righting the wrong, fixing the bad,

Maybe then the world wouldn't be so sad.

But it is what it is, and we must make it through,

These terrible times, and happy times too.

For there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.

We must only make it there.

Once we do, and I know this is true,

We will find people who care.

I like this, quite simple but still poignant. Shows that you don't always have to resort to obscure quotes and cryptic references to get a point across eloquently. Nice work.

Why not just keep the title simple and call it If Only?

Haha your ummm... made me wonder what it was about. In the 2nd sentence, I think it should be 'all alright'. I like the positive ending. Another nice simple poem. Keep on writing! :)

For the title, I agree with GemmaKilkenny's suggestion. Or another one could be 'It'll be alright'.
