“A Better Life”
When will the life that everybody follows end?
People have a choice in this world, but
they choose material things.
People believe that money is the cure to their problems,
For those people who have more money,
It is just a separation from others who
don’t have any.
Love may be an alien like word for those can’t see the full potential,
When it takes sanctuary in each individual.
When the wealthy are separated from the
Laws encouraged the discrimination and segregation
of African Americans and whites,
Love is the only answer.
The clouds have darkened through time, instead of us learning
When people stop killing people and children stop being abused,
When mothers, fathers, and children stop being killed in war,
When hate has stopped ruling us and we stop
growing hot embers in our minds,
Then love would take more small steps around the world.
Hate is the poison to this world, slowly eating us alive.
Can we decide to and act upon a life without
distrust in one another and,
Understand each individual for whom they are inside and,
Love them with the love we have?
When people realize what they have in life, and
When the waters of life calm from the roaring
Then love would be the understanding of all, and
Then beings on Earth would finally get a chance to sleep without disturbance.
Love is the reason we are alive on earth,
To help us move along to the better life.
