The World I Wish

Everyone contributes here
in his or her own way,
as each is valued equally
and has an equal say.

Our goals embrace the common good
of all who share our space.
Together we will thrive and know
we always have a place.

Our children know they’re loved and they
return that love in kind,
with empathy, respect and joy
of living intertwined.

A world like this has always been
a choice for us to make;
until we do, greed, lust and fear
will leave us in their wake.
