If Just If



Oh how wonderful it would be


To live in a world


Where the people united in faith


And let God guide them day by day



A world where there’d be peace


And smiles given freely


Where helping hands are extended


And people loving one another



No wars and no terrorism


No ill will none at all


People standing tall in their faith


Loving God like they should



The angels cried to Heaven


While the clouds stormed above


While the rain fell hard


Because they discovered the world was so cruel



The angels cried to Heaven


To discover that the world’s people


Were not living according to God’s word


They cried and cried and fell into despair



While God above


Held watch over his children


The angels continued to cry


Because it hurt them to see how wrong things were



They stopped crying on the day the sun came out


On the day when people started believing


And God up above smiled and nodded


That now everyone was united

Wouldn't it be nice. A dream as long as greed is a human weekness, but still, wouldn't it be nice. I'm dreaming with you, Rasma! Great Poem!

We are on the same page, Gypsy. I published one last night that carries a similar message. We are in a self-created mess today. God help us. Love your peace!

A beautiful poem that can only have come from your pen Gypsy! How often have so many of us longed for a world such as you describe. Some days we seem to be getting further away from the ideal that you describe. But on other days, the simplest of things happen, and belief is restored - that maybe one day?

Beautiful, awesome + voted up + shared!

Wonderfully done Rasma, the flow just took me above cloud nine and I saw the angels pleading to our creator, to give us more time to mend our wicked ways. We have a heart and it beats everyday reminding us that there is ebginning and an end to all. God bless you for these wonderful words!
