This world is filled with darkness and distress. It drags us down like

dead weights tied to our being. Pollution, panic, poverty, politics. We disagree,

disturb, distrust - our diversity becomes our daily discussion. Please's and

thank you's disappear, vanish. Violence overcomes our thoughts and actions. 

Vanity and greed, narrow minds. Vanish, banish, dissolve, dismiss. All I need is hope,

All I know is here. Happiness and passion. Determination is key, it's all I need. 

Read tweets, see fights. Forgive, it's alright. Faith, we crave. Be strong, be brave.

Free rights, reach new heights. One thought, I hold dear. One world, let's persevere.

Our world
