As I Live It – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Dream – Word of the Day




As I Live It

I too have a dream,
of a world devoid of fear,
and all that we construe as evil,
a world where nature laughs and breathes,
where trees do not tremble,
and water comes alive,
where no one needs for necessities,
and simplicity is compassion.
A world where we feel,
where we touch the inner,
and where no one is left behind.
I have a dream that it will happen,
as I live it,
as I be.
