A Whole New World

September 10, 2008
By Elise Bruski, Altoona, WI

Hide the world. Paint it black.
Erase the hate. Seal the cracks.

Draw it up. All from scratch.
Draw the world. No strings attached.

Then give it color. Reds, blues, and greens.
And all those colors. From in between.

Paint it bright. Paint it high.
Then challenge them. To touch the sky.

Delete those thoughts. Of used-to-bes.
Of never-evers. Of someday maybes.

Fill your life. With heart and soul.
With piece of mind. Now, you’re in control.

Let's create this world. One that's free...
Of cares, of hatred. One. For you and me.
