A poem to change the World

Updated on April 15, 2013

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
With selfless anonymity©

      An important message and reminder. A great poem about the need to be that change we hope to see. A wonderful message for our coming Memorial Day. Sharing. Theresa

      My thoughts exactly Sarra, and the term "Mission" sure seems to fit the work needed. But I believe if we all work together we can make this world what God intended. Thanks for stopping by and God Bless

      Thank you must65gt, I couldn't have said it better. What beautiful pros. It is only as a whole we can change our great nation back to the way it used to be. When I go to work I say that "I'm doing missionary work" as if I can smile and make one person laugh and they have a better day because of it, I've changed one small part. Of course, I'm in hopes that it's a 'pay it forward' mission that I'm on.

      This is a beautiful peace. What a contribution you have already made. I really enjoyed this, thank you for sharing it. The World needs more people thinking in this mindset. It is really a sad state of affairs out there.

      Wonderful, absolutely wonderful. Unfortunately, there aren't any words strong enough to change the world. It definitely could do with it. Thank you.
