Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

My Vision for the World

Posted Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I long for a world
Where beauty overrides business
Where cyclists ride for the fun of it
Where nations don't need to exist
Because we are all one tribe

I long for a world
Where fathers don't leave their children
Where mothers remain sane
Where siblings protect siblings
Because they are one family

I long for a world
Where humans can be humans
Where perfection isn't idolized
Where failure is celebrated
Because wisdom has always made this clear

I long for a world
Without pretending
Without deception
Without lies
Because these are the root of hatred

I long for a world
Vulnerable about ourselves
Comfortable in our lack of control
And Authentic to the core
Because this is the root of love
