An Imperfect World

by Joan Serratelli

I want the right
to be different
to live in a world
with different
kinds of people
handicapped, gay,straight
A world without war

A world where
everyone gets along
Everyone is human
Everyone has the right
to live, breathe, and
even HAVE FUN!

The world we live in
is sad
people judge others
money matters
(Money is JUST money
it is not life; it is not
death-it is just money)

Nobody should judge
anyone else
life is too hard
as it is
People should be
able to live
their own destiny
without fear of

G-d knows;
this is an imperfect
world; filled with
imperfect people

I want to live
in a world
without fear
of judgement

In my world.
the person
with the most toys
does NOT win

...the jury is handed the case: ills of mankind. we wait, the jury is not back yet we read smoke signals saying what you're saying...so. so! we keepon keeping on, knowing all of this and dodging as much as we can to survive...henry david thoreau said we 'live lives of quiet desperation' and he meant allllll people living. stay atop.

Well said. This makes sense in many ways. Thank you.

Yes, it's a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world. "We make war that we might live in peace." - Aristotle

Joan, it is indeed an imperfect world filled with imperfect people and many without purpose in their life other than fullfilling selfish needs and wants...obstacles to overcome will be there for all to assess and deal with....it is how you do that that matters...my source and wellspring of strength is Christ....I knocked and the door was opened....a good inspirational video all ought to see is "Life without Limbs"... ~HUGS

Diversity is strength, uniforms lead to disaster. It is the so-called normals, the minority that they are, who try to take away the greatest in humanity... difference.
