(My first attempt at poetry, so criticize away.. but gently, please :) )
I woke up one morning to find
I could see through the world’s facade
Of happiness, joy and self-reliance
Hiding the insecurities, loneliness beneath.
It was utterly horrible and scary to see
The ugliness, hatred and envy lurking
Under the surface, a calm blue sea.
I thought if each had the power alike
Would it shatter the bonds we’ve known to love?
Would it divert the wars beyond our borders
And rather start within our own?
Would it overthrow the leaders we’ve chosen
To keep the ones we scorn in rule?
Would it teach us to love the ones we hate
Or compel us to hate the ones we love?
And I woke up the morning to find
Everything was back to normal, Thank God!
