Can Love Save The World?

Love has been with humankind forever and ever.
Since the dawn of time.
Hatred and jealousy have come along for the ride.

Can love save this dying world?
Or, will hatred, and jealousy destroy this world?
Let's try and find the answer inside beating hearts.

Capture the love in our hearts before it parts.
The world of hatred and jealousy only brings sorrow, wars, poverty and children going to bed hungrily.

Little by little every day.
Love is disappearing from our hearts.
Hatred and jealousy are slithering together into our hearts.

Let's chase away hatred and jealousy.
With kindness, tenderness, tolerance, trust, generosity, mercy, courtesy,
Friendliness, understanding, helpfulness, compassion, good deeds!

Humankind has the power within to change this sad reality.
When, humankind becomes of one mind.
The impossible of any kind can be designed.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
