World peace, hunger, war, disease.
There are many who wish they could change these.
But in order for us to heal those things,
We must first take a look at our stings.
From our much smaller cuts, we bleed,
And if we beg and if we plead
Maybe, just maybe we will find
Those bigger problems will be on the decline.
Most of our problems are close to home,
And can't be solved by a dusty tome.
They can only be solved with kindness and love,
And these things don't have to come from above.
You can show people compassion everyday,
In everything and in every way.
At home, at school and at work too
And people everywhere will thank you.
The one thing that I want to change
Is how we deal with each other, and it isn't strange
To show people that you really care a lot.
You really only need one shot.
So without much more stalling or delay,
Don't bottle up your feelings or keep them at bay.
Show the world what you can do.
I believe I can change, how about you?
So this is a poem I wrote for a scholarship called, What Would You Change? It's basically asking what you would change if you could change anything in the entire world. So I chose this.
