If One Word Could Change…

this bleeding world

it would open eyes to see

beyond the stars and past the scars

 garden of sublime beauty

what a difference a word  could make

in this world it might be free

what a difference the words would be

if we thought of “you and me”

***

an angry heart

set young girls as captives free

still the troubled and confused mind

like a swift but cooling stream

what a difference a word would make

what a filling soothing  dream

what a difference a word would make

how a child’s face would beam

***

a smoking gun

give a child a rose instead

balloon is freed with hope aloft

floating above the hate and dread

what a difference a word could make

like eagles we would soar

all the songs were sung by open hearts

no need for rich or poor

***

the plots of man

muddied policies made clear

shut the gates of indecision closed

unite people there and here

what a difference a word could make

spoken by a healing tongue

what a dreamy place this world could be

for the elder and their young

The DP Writing Challenge for the week is “To the Tune of…”  Have a little fun and try your hand at writing or rewriting song lyrics.

I wrote this poem thinking of it lyrically but I really dont have music to put it to. This is a song that I would have to compose. However the song Imagine by John Lennon is the background sentiment to these lyrics.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!
