Our world…


Our world

                                    Our world
One earth and people, we are.
The sea touches our feet, the sea belong to all the people of our world.
The sun, sun-kissed our face. Same sun that touches every child face in our world.
My grandchildren are tree-huggers like their grandfather.
The forest is our kindest friend.
The trees create fresh air for us to breathe.
The soil, the earth.
Create vegetables to keep us healthy and strong.
This is our world and today our world need concern, kindness and we must befriend
each other.
I pray we learn,
the world is smaller than we believe.
I hope our leaders learn,
to work toward no hunger, no war, no sickness and knowing.
Every child, every person, every grandparent must be given the chance,
to know love and dance on the earth for more time..
All the medico help must be provided, freely and with open arms.
Today our world must become one.
Smile at a stranger,
greet someone, you don’t know.
Help who you can.
A generous heart will know peace,
for they did their best.

1— Grandchild play with other children at the beach.
He does not see the color of the other children skin and
he doesn’t question the children race or religion.
They built a great dam and a small city of sand.
Would be nice if us grown-ups could learn from them.
Life is simple.
Work together and lead with concern, kindness and friendship.
Rate someone by their deeds and learn.
Many with the same goals,
can create a proper dam and city.

2— My grandchild told me. We learn to take cover in school today.
Grandpa, I heard the teachers talking. The principle will carry a gun.
Grandpa. I’m afraid to go to school.
He brought his grandchild near and he told him.
Can’t allow fear to overtake us and you must be brave.
Your generation must fix this world.
You must go to school. Learn about this world and not allow fear to slow you down.
Fear is the true weakness.
Bad people want us to know fear and mistrust.
We must lead with concern, kindness and love.
The boy smiled and he hugged his Grandfather.
He told him.
Okay grandpa. I will be like you.
You like everyone and I will be brave.
