In A Perfect World. Love and Peace would Reign as King

Love and Peace in a Perfect world.(Dream!)

In a perfect world I´d take your hand

we´d walk together down to the sand,

You´d smile at me as we walk to the sea

and watch the children playing .... free!

Happy, running , laughing, splashing

one another in the sea.

All safe.

In a perfect world.


In a perfect world, we all are fed,

the starving don´t exsist ..

Childrens´tummies satisfied as they a tucked into bed.

Unlike now in our IMperfect world.

The images are tortorous on our t.v. screens,

babies look like skeletons,,no hope for skin and bone

No mothers´milk, her breasts are empty

empty as her stomach, she cries not for herself

she cannot feed her baby in our IMperfect world.

United Nations wall assures us

Nation shall not pick up sword against nation

neither shall they learn war anymore.

WHEN?

In a perfect world.


In a perfect world the pistol

that now is just a sculpture

will be be a knotted barrel.

No bullets can pass through any of these guns

In a perfect world.

In a perfect world the mother´s milk would flow

Babies would be fed. No high priced food

that some can´t buy,

No governments with promises

that turn into a lie.

In a perfect world.


In a perfect world the cruelty to animals we see

will not exist, just will not be

for gentle people will abound

and care for every living thing.

That´what a perfect world would bring.


Oh! In a perfect world...........

Im trying not to feel sorry for myself. It´s a horrible trait that I don´t normally have (or so my friends tell me)

I must write more. It´s great therapy.

Beautifully done Dim. God's greatest law is the GOLDEN RULE. The LAW of JESUS ABOVE ALL Laws is THAT Golden Rule. The greatest law of Jesus is NOT that Jesus rose from the dead.

The greatest law of the living benevolent God and of Jesus and EVERY religion on planet Earth is that we love our fellow man and woman as ourselves.

And- Jesus said to pray like this- "Our God that is in heaven - hallowed be Your name, YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH - YOUR KINGDOM COME ON THIS EARTH - as it is in Your heaven..."

No matter how many wars and rumors of war we have- we are to MAKE THIS EARTH resemble what heaven is.

No matter is 144,000 virgins ascend into heaven - it does not matter - our DUTY is to make Earth resemble the home of the benevolent God - AND - we will NOT see this while voting for lawyers who will NEVER clean up their own nest of corruption.

God bless you dear Dim. WE are our neighbor's keepers. It's the law above ALL laws. For a politician to claim anything else first and foremost -is a lie. God bless you!

WE ARE TO MAKE THIS A PERFECT PLACE.

Micky's comment is awesome and echoes what I wanted to say. There is nothing preventing us from doing what we can to help make it better for those less fortunate than us. The perfect world dies only if we stop wanting it, or stop dreaming of it. Have a sweet day, Dim. :)


Dim Flaxenwick profile image

Dim Flaxenwick 5 years ago from Great Britain Author

Hi Astra Nomik. Yes it´s not unusual for our lovely Micky to say the right thing. Sometimes his coment is a poem itself.

I love your point that the prfect world only dies if we let it. If we give up trying., but we won´t will we? Not while there are people like you and me and Micky Dee


Dim Flaxenwick profile image

Dim Flaxenwick 5 years ago from Great Britain Author

Dear, dear Micky. God bless you too.

Your comment is wonderful. God´s Kingdom on earth.... THAT´s our perfect world.

Love you man, as always. x

Hey Dim Flaxenwick, very nicely written and in a perfect world, love would reign and bring peace to all. That cannot be denied, however, it seems like there are plenty of people who are simply too selfish and refuse to change things for the better. Poverty and Homelessness is two of the biggest problems facing the world, and the hub I wrote "Why World Peace Is Not Happening" goes into details about why Peace isn't going to come. To be honest, like I love to do, Love is the key element missing in the world and it's really unfortunate that many people really lack the knowledge and wisdom to bring it to the fore-front. Great Hub! :)

Thank you very much Peggy W.

There´s so much beauty in the world around us in inside many people. It just seems there are too many who don´t care about the planet or care about others.

I guess we can only do our own little bit and set a good e g for our children.

Take care

Well stated! We are responsible for ourselves and can hopefully set good examples by how we lead our lives for others to emulate. Hopefully we are not the bad example that people wish to avoid. Ha!

.....well you certainly rule our hubpages as queen with your latest and greatest masterpiece - this is a powerful and moving poetic manifesto and one in which every virtual classroom in the cyber universe should have - but in the meantime let me post it on my FACEBOOK page with a direct link back here.

lake erie time 9:49pm and I always love your visits to my humble little hubspace - tremendously.

Dim so often I have stirred you with my Poetry and tears were shed by you. My dear, you have now brought tears a flowing down this Saddle's face. Your masterpiece here will be shared by me with many followers, I will Face Book, Twitter, Stumble, Blog, Digg and Redditt this work.

I am moved beyond words, you have outdone yourself here, God was surely guiding your hand as you penned these words of wisdom. I ditto everything Micky Dee wrote. When the world finally wakes up by a miracle from our creator and shows LOVE true LOVE then Peace will come and neighbors will lay down arms and the weapons cast forever into the sea.

Countries will be fed and nourished and no CHILD will ever go hungry again and mother's mild will flow like water from a well. Thank you for publishing this beauty, I am blessed to have read it. My heart feels so much better now that the tears have subsided. Hugs to you from me.

Dream On, Epigramman and Saddlerider.

You take my breath away with theses comments. I didn´t mean to make a grown man cry, but it speaks volumnes about your wonderful, compassionate nature, Ken, thank you.

Colin thanks a million and congratulations on your best hub.!!!

Dream On you always make me smile when I feel blue.You´ve done it again in your comment. I envisage a small boy on a bicycle throwing newspapers and my hub onto every lawn in the land.

THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING MY DAY! xxxxxxx

Oh, Micky Dee-- amen; as my son told somebody when they asked who he was going to vote for (remember when?), he said, "Not voting 'cause only one I want to vote for isn't on the ballot" and on being asked who, he said, "God, man,

'cause ain't no politicians out there can make this a perfect world." Dim, I fell for this entire poem; that's what this world is supposed to be--perfect -- to bad we've made such a mess of things from the very beginning -- and haven't learned a thing!

Dim, oh how I wish your perfect world were real..wouldn't that be wonderful? The hurt, pain, suffering, worry, dismay, heartbreak all gone away...oh, how I wish for this day. I love this bitter sweet lament...dream of the way it should be. So beautifully said, Dim Flaxenwick. I am with you 100%. Bless you.

UP Beautiful Awesome...

Teylina, your son has his head screwed on the right way.Thanks for reading. Glad you liked it.

If there´s a God , then there is also a devil. I think the devil loves having a helping hand in ruining God´s creations, but he won´t win in the end.

(The meek will inherit the earth and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace) psalm 37 verse 11

Take care . Please send a ´cheers!´to your son.

Lucky Cats, Your comment was so beautiful, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wrote this when I just couldn´t stand any more images on t.v of the famine in East Africa. Some of these governments have a lot to answer for.

I like to live in the hope that Revelation chptr 21 verse 4 will one day be a reality.

Take care and thank you for such

a lovely comment.

So... I hope to meet you there! I would love to walk with you to the sand and sea!

P.S. WONDERFUL photos!!

RunAbstract, there will always be people who believe in different paths for the earth's future, but along w/the quote from Dim and yours from Isaiah, there's also one in 1 Peter that says the earth will be here forever; so like you, I'd love to explore this earth in the state it was meant to be lived in, and I can never think of a better place than the sand and the sea! In the meantime- oh well, have a great weekend everybody!
