I want to live in a world



I want to live in a world where

We have the liberty to eat

Vegetables or meat,

Where hospitals are not unfair

To turn healthy persons into patients,

Where lands are not snatched

And government’s main governance

Doesn’t restrict towards collecting tax.


I want to live in a world where

Countries engage

In global parity of wealth and welfare

Not market weapons to flaunt self-defeating strength,

Where leaders fight for growth and peace

Than avenging themselves for trivial that and this,

Where concern and care for people go to any length.


I want to live in a world where

Winning remains in the spirit,

But competition doesn’t become a thoroughfare

For crime, injustice and deceit,

Where weapons of every kind, soft and hard

Are bid farewell for good,

Where peace can be seen and heard

In every single neighborhood.

Vegetarian sausages are often very good, as is fake bacon (facon).

Sometimes translations have made some poems more difficult to decipher but I take my hat off to you for your skill, your always being open to crit, for who among us can write in your language? However, what comes over so powerfully to me is your desire for a better world. This transcends all barriers that the powers that be try to impose on us. We are all as I have often said “Jack Tamson’s Bairns” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jock_Tamson%27s_Bairns I love Indian culture and the many philosophies and incredible richness to be… Read more »
