My World

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
Imagine.
Tall, majestic mountains.
Trees.
Flowers.
Clear skies.
No war.
Persecution.
Hate.
Pain.
Unnatural death.

My world.

A world we should
all
strive for.
A simpler world,
where children played
outdoors.
Where war isn't sold as a
video game.

The sun i always
shining in
my world.
Only on the days
when the sky provides the
life-giving rain
is it gray.

The cemetery has
few.
Drugs are
unheard of.
Alcohol is for
special occasions.
And tobacco is
illegal.

My world is
peaceful.
My world is
uncorrupted.
My world is
pure fantasy.

A very somber ending to a great poem. Your poetry gets better every poem you write.

Wow this was really good. I like the line a world without war in video games. Awesome line. I really feel the need of helping this world change. Great message! Suggestion: I challenge you to come up with more examples in your world.
