Oh, how I wish we would see this world as a place
where hostility no longer flourishes
in fields where we planted
only flowers and trees to grow.
Let’s water the roots and roses
to bloom in understanding, not in judgement.
Cherish its thorns, welcome them,
but stop preventing the roses from blooming.
Don’t spill water on soil which is only meant to harvest
fear and separation.
You may think I’m a dreamer and perhaps it’s true.
Seeing a threatening world at every corner is as pouring poison into our souls.
Please know, I’m not turning a blind eye to your concerns of today’s world,
but I try to choose my thoughts carefully,
just to keep my sanity.
I believe in a world of colors and opportunities,
a world where matters color grey, not black and white
where people could be as flowers being watered with trust.
I want to believe in humanity
In open circles
In goodness of heart
As it’s there too.
And we don’t have to go far to look for it.
Just like you raised me in Faith, Hope and Love
we know fearing the future world isn’t the cure, but they are.
You see, our answers are right here.
They are right here.Browse Front PageShare Your Idea
