0006 If only

If only
everyone about to pull the trigger of a gun
imagined the shell hitting his own family
what a world

if only
everyone remembered how they loved
their teddy bears or dolls, asking nothing back from them
and lived like this for the rest of their lives
what a world

if only
we could keep the environment as clean and happy
as the seaside
what a world

if only
everyone who cut down a tree
planted a tree in its place
what a world

if only
you would add your own deepest hopes to this poem
and all your friends agreed
what a poem
what a world

    If only... it would be a perfect world!
    I don't think I can live in a perfect world...
    But if only... for a few hours in a day, I would...
    Thank you,

    If only
    friends hadn't invented
    the idea of 'enemies',
    what a world, Danny!

    If only
    the Chinese hadn't discovered gunpowder
    Nobel hadn't made dynamite
    and all the World Wars were settled by a food fight using jelly

    If only. I read somewhere once that IF was the biggest little word in the English language, and I think it must be true. IF only, and the world would be a better place.
