Wonder says I


If men were to create themselves
Then mirrors shall become gladiatory arenas
And the Earth, an epitome of cruelty

If ants could build skyscrapers
Though centuries it must take
Yet it would portray Natures wisdom

If crocodiles were to be executioners
In moments crooks become stories
But for criminals there would be none

If love and peace would reign on Earth
And together we conquer the deserts
What a place that shall be!

If poetry could make you smile
And when you read you find peace
And hope that someday all will be good

If love is all we seek
Then we must look to God Almighty
Him who made the world and the Universe

If I finally fall in love
I wouldnt always know what to do
I would just stare and smile all the time

Written in 2008 with some editing done before publishing. The reader can see how my voice has changed since then. I didnt even know if the Title was proper, but let”s do some justice to an old poem.
