    Better the World Today

    Haven’t brought an end to war
    Or fed all the hungry children
    Haven’t ended the sick and poor
    Can’t imagine what’s their end

    Haven’t stop the greenhouse effect
    Haven’t cured aids or cancer
    Haven’t been president elect
    Can’t come up with the answer

    Haven’t stopped murder and rape
    Haven’t stopped the hands of time
    Haven’t caused an end to red tape
    Can’t seen the enemies line

    Can’t put an end to earthquakes
    Can’t cause the hurricanes to cease
    Can’t stop the pain that hate makes
    Haven’t given suffering sweet release

    I’m gonna make a brand new start
    My life from here will begin
    I will give my life and heart
    For the broken hearts to mend

    Loving more, sharing what I have
    Leading to happiness not to sadness
    Giving my whole and not the half
    To help do away with the madness

    I’ll let my light shine from the dark
    Help those who stumble along the way
    Upon those whose heart bares the mark
    I must start to better the world today

    Very nice... ! It takes one smile, one hello or just one nice gesture..... that changes someone's view in life... including your own. Very nice work!

    I agree, sharing, leading, and giving is what allows your light to shine

    Very nice idea. Would be nice if we all felt that way. TS

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
