I hope for better times


I look forward to a day when
Depression is a thing of the past
Where anxiety has no grip on me
Where the birds of anger
Don't sore through my head
Where hatred has no place
And Where there is only smiles
On every bodies face

I look forward to a time when
Man is united for the common good
When no one has to go to bed hungry
When petty wars are not fought over oil
When greed and envy can not toil
Where there is no cause for terror
Where there in no murder
And everybody can unite together

I look forward to a time when
There is no diseases to cause pain
No ailments to cause suffering
No earthquakes to tear down The land
Or no tsunamis to bring up the sea
A time when resources are abundant
And there for everyone to take free
I long for that time and hope it comes soon.

    A highly optimistic note with an insight and a piece of advice for visualising a brighter future ahead. Your authentic words have an appeal though spoken to yourself in the first person. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful thoughts, but please, don't hold your breath waiting. Our world was not meant to be as you, and most of us, would like. I wish I knew why. But at least we can dream of better times and get some consolation from that. You did a great job on this poem. (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
