In My World


In My world,
Poverty shan't exist in our world.
Everybody would be treated with equality,
Yet hard work would always be present.

In My world,
People would be judged by what they could do,
Not by their color, religion, or age,
Nor by their gender, beliefs or looks.

In My world,
Technology may not be so abundant as today,
But the lush green valleys and Nature's way,
Shall never perish, nor shall it die away.

In My world,
Animals would know caution and fear,
But death wouldn't be so cruel, and tragic.
Nor shall any animal be shunned upon.

In My world,
Wars would be but a nightmare,
Dictators would just be a legend,
And love would not be a fantasy.

But what is My world?
It doesn't exist, nor shall it ever occur.
Yet one can dream a million miles,
So, I say, let them dream.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Many people wish for this and that. Everyone does.
You could be stripped of all your possessions, but never your imagination. If one were to dream, who is to stop them?

    Beautiful, Cassandra, just beautiful! I totally love the note too.
    Plus, I like the last stanza:
    But what is My world?
    It doesn't exist, nor shall it ever occur.
    Yet one can dream a million miles,
    So, I say, let them dream.

    I LOVE dreaming. Good job, girl! (Report) Reply

    What beautiful thoughts
    What beautiful feeling
    Your world certainly is
    , More than appealing

    Yes one can dream of a better world,
    And fight and scream, until you're heard.

    You're beautiful, idealistic poem makes us conscious of how imperfect our society is and how much there is yet to do.They even want to take away, the little positive we have today. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
