The Garden Of Eden - Poem by Adeline Fleischer

The Garden of Eden,
Was meant to be,
An example of how ­
The world ­ should be! But now-a-days,
People don't care,
The world has been ruined ­
Almost everywhere! Like a battle field
Full of evil forces,
Everyone trying ­
To still all voices! The dream we hoped for,
Has faded away,
Pushed in the background ­
Will it return ­ someday? All we can do,
Is hope ­ people will learn,
That peace and love ­
Should be their concern!

    Very nice poem - and a good reminder. If people would listen more to those kinda words, I´d probably lose my job, but hell would I be thankful.
    Thank you.
