Just A Dream


I dream of a world where the grass is green,
Where the water is blue and the language is clean.
Where the only thing dirty is grass and mud,
And the only hard thing around is wood.

I dream of a world where the sea is blue,
Where a new born scar is the only tattoo.
Where people are friendly and nice and calm,
And say “goodbye” to all self-harm.

I dream of a world where the clouds are white,
Where the moon is dull and the sun is bright.
Where the days are long and filled with joy,
A world of hope where girl meets boy.

I dream of a world of laughter and cheer,
Where no one is afraid to shed a tear.
Where black and white can live as one,
And all the hatred has finally gone.

I dream of a world where birds can sing,
Where children run and laugh and swing.
Where miracles happen every day,
And where everybody has their say.


I dream of a world where clocks tick tock,
Where shops can sell all their stock.
Where planes fly high and fast and free,
And no one questions the honey bee.

I dream of a world where friends are made,
Where nobody has to be afraid.
Where people do as they please,
And living life is just a breeze.

My dream of a world is one of hope,
But ‘till this day, I guess we’ll cope.
For this vision is one filled with cloud and steam,
But there again, it was only a dream.

poet Sir John Suckling

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;
