Poetry – Peace Love and Happiness

As an idealist I often write down little odes like this. I do believe that we can make a better world and should work to do just that.

There is not a problem between people – if we put religion and politics aside. There is a problem with poverty, greed, nationalism, selfishness, arrogance, intolerance, tribalism, unfairness, poverty, injustice, violence, hatred, inequality, oppression, exploitation, ignorance …………….

There is nothing that we cannot address and solve.

This is a poem about that positive zeitgeist. We can change the world:

First one person believes it – then two – and before you know it you have a positive zeitgeist movement!

Peace Love and Happiness

What this world needs now is a big dollop of love

Spread like honey over toast

A cuddle and a hug with the warmth of a cosy bath

That stretches from coast to coast

A welcoming smile and a helping hand

To show we all do really care

The gentleness of touch of a passing breeze

To show we’re always there

What this world needs is peace and harmony

To melt away the greed

A shared drink and meal with tinkling laugh

To show we are agreed

For love can thaw the hardest heart

If we put aside our hate

If we join together with respect and pride

We can surely improve our fate

Peace love and happiness

Is that too much to ask?

I’ll join with you if you’ll join with me

Together there’s a task.

It’s a job that is worth doing

To improve our sad old world

Peace love and happiness

Is worth much more than gold
