A Thought - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

god created
the world for
catholics, jews,
muslims, buddhists
like why he made them
indians, chinese,
british, and africans
it is nice to know
he loves diversities
though some prefer
to fight over differences
others learn to learn
what god has to offer
in this vast vast world
that evey star in the sky
shines in a different way
it is nice to know that
somewhere, some corner
in the world, there are people
praying for world peace

A Thought
It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.
Robert Louis Stevenson
