Write The World Right

If

I could

write the world

right

 

I'd

scribble

recipes with an 

ingredient to expel notions of

discrimination and bury any sentiments of hatred

underneath thousands and

thousands of

kindhearted words until they are

long gone and

forgotten

 

I’d

jot down

whatever

word combinations

for

however

long I'd have to, to get my

brothers back to being their brother's keeper

and my sisters to realize they’re

greater than that which lies

between their

thighs

 

I'd

write

cures for diseases

and thesis to save endangered

species

 

I'd

compose

poems that could end wars

and bring peace to all

regions

 

I'd

write in

every handwriting

known to men throughout the Globe

that, truly "all lives matter"

 

I'd

script love in

every heart that could override sorrow

giving hope for

tomorrow


if I could write the world right


I'd

pen seeds

in paragraphs to form

chapters that could grow wholesome books

to educate the

masses


I'd

write

ancestral memoirs

that could reiterate the important need for

a village to raise

a child

I'd

specify through

scribe the roles of

a wife

of

a child

and

in bold capital letters it'd read

THE HUSBAND IS TO BE HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD

I'd

write

a manual

detailing mutual respect so all would know

what to expect


if

I could


if

I

could

only

write the world right


I

would

    Maybe you have spelled out exactly what we all should be doing. Writing to provide hope, to bring people together, to solve problems. to promote peace. Let's all pledge to do just that.
    Excellent theme, great write. - Phil A.
