IF


If we can find a solution
To live in peace in this world
If we can find a minute to help somebody else that is in need
If we let go of our worries
Don't you think we can live a better life?
If the sky could talk what would he tell us?
The sky can't talk
Don't have a voice
Don't have a face
Don't have a body
Like humans do
When the sky is shining
It is breathtaking
I don't think we are close enough to the harbour
Don't you think so?
Because we can't hardly see The Tall Ships from here
In order for us to see it we must move closer to the harbour
The Tall Ships are sailing On Lake Ontario
At full mast
If God is right for us
Why would we turn against him?
Is it because of the fear that rises in our lives?
If we could understand that drinking and driving don't mix
If we could understand that if you drink and drive you can kill someone
If we could understand that we are responsible for our actions
If we could understand that everything you do in moderation is fine
If we could understand that is time to stop playing God
If we could understand that we have no control over the weather
If we could understand that guns are not toys
If we could understand that they kill people
If we could understand that guns are not for children
If we had saved that $1 bill that went out of circulation
We would had extra money if we sold it today
If we had sympathy for those who lost there loved ones
If we had some respect for each other
If we had some kind of faith
If we know that we have some bad habbits
If we could quit our bad habbits
We would be much healthier by now
If we could listen to music more often
We would be more relaxed
If trees could stay green forever
This is not possible
Because they are bare naked for winter
This is how God does things
If we could make a wish
If we could give somebody a token of appreciation
If we could listen to our heart
If we could listen to the sound of silence
If we could understand that it is quiet like a dead person
If we could understand that we can't control time
If we could understand that time moves fast
If we could understand that some of our loved ones made there Choices to be cremated
And the others to be buried
If we could understand that the anthology of our loved ones will be read
When they die
If we could understand that we need blood to live
If we could understand that without blood we would be dead
If we could understand that our bodies are made of water
If we could understand that we need water to survive
Because we can't live without it
If we could understand that we have a duty to the community by being Good citizens
If we could understand that love will keep us together
If we could understand that earth is no paradise
If we could understand that there is violence on earth
If we want to end violence we must work together to end
If we could respect each others rights
If we could respect each others religion
If we could respect what others believe
If we could put our mind to rest and let our problems vanish for the night
If we could feel our thoughts drifting away
If we could know what hurts the most
Is it loneliness?
Is it Isolation?
Is the feeling that you are unloveable?
If we could see that our dirty laundry is just scatered all over our Bedrooms
Our empty wallets sits at the dresser in our bedrooms
If we could know how deep is the wound in our fingers
If we could know that a band aid helps to heal the wond faster

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
