If I could do one thing
One thing for all
I would turn the clocks back
Before man started to fall
I would erase all evidence
Of us being here at all

Because where is the peace in fighting?
Where is the rising in a fall?
And who could possibly answer my call?

The common man lying in a bed
Weary because his job is lying dead
Answers because there isn't a point to an unfair life
There is no justice in strife
And there is no fun in death and denial
And there isn't glory
At least not for a while...
Because hoping and hating
Watching and waiting
Do simply nothing at all.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem because I feel us as human beings should do more than simply see the problems in the world, we should go out and do something about them. Whether it's recycling some plastic bottles or inventing a solution to global warming.
