Our World - Poem by Mary Flowers Parks

The world would be a happier place
A place where we would love to be
If only we could think of you
In place of "me","me","me".
Our sailors on a lonesome sea
Our fliers in the sky
If only we would pray for them
In place of "my", "my", "my".
So why don't "we" instead of "me"
And use "ours" in place of "mine"
Would make this world a happier place
And no more of "me's" and "my's"
