A poem to change the World
A poem to change the world,
What words could make men see
The travesty and evil,
this world as come to be?
What words could one compose?
That would embed tranquility
Or end dismay and hopelessness
And clean our air and sea?
That one man or woman's pen
Could write words to make man see
That change must come from each of us
So this, a better place would be
A poem to change the world;
Just what would my poem say?
Would it speak of hate and greed?
Or the love and kindness every day?
What words could my poem say?
That might ease the plight of poor
More over remains the question
Why now, they listened not before.
So I'll hearken not to write one
But instead by actions and by deeds
That I might make a difference
To each soul I'm blessed to meet.
Change may not come at once
But in time we may all see
If we but offer others hope
