It was once said in a lovely song
That love makes the world go round
But what happens if we lose all faith
And can no longer find happiness or love?
Has the world become so full of hate?
That it just sits awkwardly on its side
Waiting to be cleansed of all hate and pride?
This must be changed, and it must be quick,
We must remember an easy trick.
I write here this moment to tell of what matters most,
Though I fear it has become as forgotten as a wandering ghost.
People seem to forget these days, of what had once brought them together
They seem to lose track of the much larger picture.
It is not money, clothing, or shoes
Or how well you look or the friends you choose.
They simply need to remember one thing
The thing so bright my heart could sing.
They must remember love and happiness
That can hold you in a warming grasp.
When we were young and ran carelessly
We didn’t stop to think or see
The problems of the world.
But that was when our cares were like feathers
They would float away or we’d share them together.
That was our most happy state
Lives filled with love up to the brim
No one ever looking grim.
The world was full of unity
There was no hate our eyes could see.
It shined as brightly as the sun,
Full of love and happiness.
We really must return to that, now you see
When the world was pure with unity.
But we too often rush along
Judging others on where they belong.
Surely anyone can easily see
This is wrong.
I challenge all to take a stand
Fight for all across the land.
Disengage from the worldly pride
Let go of hate, and set it aside.
I want to see the world as it was before,
Even if that was when we were four.
Return the world to its normal pattern
And let it spin to songs of love and happiness.
