About the Poem

All the hate in this world struck a cord with me. I wrote to share my feelings about the destruction this hate is having on my generation. I wish world peace was this easy.

World Peace

Mystifying beauty
Captivating dreams
Never-ending rainbows
A world so full of dreams

These are misled thoughts
Our world is not like this
Hate has scoured our minds
Hate will cause our deaths

Looking to the future
Right now seem very bleak
War is now an issue
Peace is for the meek

Ignorance of man
To look beyond ones faults
Has caused a misconception
Of others like ourselves

A join of hand and heart and will
Would put and end to this
The same value placed on others
Like we place upon ourselves
Would end the hate and violence
That’s tearing out our hearts

When this is done
Our world’s complete
The pain and hardship gone
And once again, just like before
Peace will lead us on
