Would You Mind? - Poem by Sandra Osborne

Would you mind
If I used your world
To crush all the laughter,
To feel the angels cry,
To watch the flowers wilt,
Upon a dry planet?

Would you mind
If I used your words
To describe the darkness,
To harbor the hate,
To watch the rulers die,
Upon a dead planet?

Would you mind
If I used your thoughts
To think all the lies,
To amaze all the people,
To watch the heavens fade,
Upon a dark planet?

Would you mind
If I used your dreams
To heal all the world,
To transform the future,
To watch the greed die,
Upon a golden planet?

Would You Mind?
