* A New World Melody *

I write the poems that -

the whole world read
I write words that just
know their need

Our faithful Sun
will heal each day
Children having fun
out of harms way

Need we change our minds
with each fruitful season
Love will guide ourselves
without war and treason

People are crying
Our children are dying
Our sons are suffering
No longer home coming

I wish to write poems that
the whole world sing
Brides that see Love
with wedding rings

Words that play and line
dance in country fashion
Healing all our wounds with
Human Compassion

People are crying
Our children are dying
Our sons are suffering
No longer home coming

with loving empathy
Help write the songs,
help write the words
Inspire we must write,

'A New World Melody'

There can never be war
when hands are weaponless
and all people embrace their
families with loving tenderness

People are crying
Our children are dying
Our sons are suffering
No longer, home coming

Peace can't be all that
very far felt, when -

'People are People
Who Care'


* To; All our friends for Peace;
These inspires, gifted words are messages to be heard with song and music. Hopefully, as likened other purposeful music, they will truly serve to be a 'New World Melody' of Empathy and Compassion. Thankful for all whom support these efforts. Love be Omnipotent and Guiding.

    Everyone in our World needs to read this poem, its message of no war but peace, is paramount to the suvival of our species. I find it strange that with all the scientific advancements man has made, he still feels the need to kill his fellow man in order to solve his differences or fulfill his greed. Thank you for writing this poem, I hope it touches many hearts. (Report) Reply

    Words that touch the heart, Souls cry for Peace but the World can not hear them, to busy in the physical realm, caught up in the hunger of power and greed. We must never give up our hopes of an awakening...10 (Report) Reply
