''United Earth'' - Poem by Mary Nagy

How is it that so many of the people around the world
feel the same about the way our troubles have unfurled,
yet, still there is no simple way to bring about world peace.
Why is it just so difficult to make the heartache cease?

We all know that we're hurting eachother everyday.
We all see what the conflicts are but yet we never say.
If all the angry people could just let their voices heard
I wonder if all those in charge would hear our united word.

In each place they have problems although they feel the same.
It seems so simple to bring relief to all without a name.
Who cares what country you live in? We all are just alike.
If those in charge can't help us then they ought to take a hike!

I pray one day it's safe for us to travel far and wide
around this wondrous world of ours and feel no need to hide.
We should all feel like family on one ''United Earth''.
One day we may take notice and make them see just what we're worth.

    Hey Mary, that's good! I feel I want to paint a placard for you to go out there and get everyone together. If only, Eh! ! ! It sounds a lovely thought. Sincerely Ernestine (Report) Reply

    This is a dignified plea for a united earth, Mary. Perhaps you should find words to replace 'higher ups' as I feel this weakens your poem. Just a thought.
