The Crystal Ball - Poem by Jane Skidmore Bennett

Wouldn't it be nice to have a crystal ball?
I think of it often
A crystal ball that would show only good things
Close your eyes, what do you see?
The one I'm looking in,
I see people everywhere communicating in a nonviolent way
I see people helping each other
I see no guns
No hungry people
No homeless people
People are respecting one another
No wars
That is what I see,
What would you see if you had a crystal ball??
