If I Could...

If I could-
I would
change the world
and make it kinder,
more just
- a world of peace...
but I am not God,
possess no miracles-
still,
I'd aim high...
If only I could,
and were able
I'd right wrongs
crush
corruption...
But on a more
personal
level
I'd have the means
to travel widely
to writer's retreats,
Belize, the South Pacific,
( Oh, to see
Vienna
and Budapest
only once more...)
All in all,
I'd want the
assurance
that I'd never waver
if I struggle
and since we are engaging
in fantasy,
yes,
I'd like to fly,
be invisible
and turn back time
( if only awhile)
though
honestly,
if I could
I'd cull more courage
cleave closer to my
loved ones,
in conclusion
I'd just be-
a better
me.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
