Visual Poet’s Thirty Days of National Poetry Month 2011; A Perfect World Poem

On this day of National Poetry Month 2011; I am asking everyone to consistently make efforts to show compassion and acceptance towards others.  My poem, visual poetry A Perfect World and visual poetry, the Lamp of Love was created as a result of noticing the manner in which some mistreat people they perceive as different.

I wish there were a world where hatred, prejudice had no place
I wish there were a world where inclusion was the rule, no matter the race
I wish there were a world, free of evil and wrong
A world, where everybody got along
A world, where we lived in harmony, for our lifelong
Let us light and maintain the Lamp of Love, eternally
For, on this planet, there will always be so many different beliefs, nationalities
Still, we can make it a perfect world, if we only stand together, peacefully…
