Written for: Poets United Midweek Motif~Vision
Share a vision of the future in a new poem.
Will passage of time serve to allay their fears,
those auguries of annihilation
where each patch of land is pooled in tears,
and peace a chimera throughout all nations?
World’s children view disaster as commonplace.
They are starving, homeless nomads losing hope.
Envenomed evil hides without a face,
armed with weapons of panoramic scope.
Build a universe without ammunition.
Education needs to be crucial for all.
If you choose to practice a religion,
do not insist others heed your call.
Humanity begs a collective trust
with love, compassion, and tolerance a must.
