Change The World


Everything felt and seen reflects
my consciousness - how true,
when blue I look at sad poetry,
when happy, only poems with
endearment terms will do

Oh joy, we can change the world,
make people feel good, feel love,
make them see and do positive
things, though it is still
impossible now

All expression of loneliness and
hurt is labeled criminal, unloved
people are incarcerated, rejection
and pain are reinforced, jail
changes them irrevocably

What they surmised - the world
is horrible – proven by experience;
innocent people are shocked when
attacked and robbed, but there are
no innocent people

In our depraved society – only
people suffering pain in
various degrees…

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
