What this world needs


This world needs
Hearts of glass
And words of steel
To help us feel
To help us heal

This word needs iron resolve
And down-feather calm
To get along
To ignite in song

This world needs blistered feet
And firefly will
To surmount this hill
To endure this chill

This world needs clasped hands
And evergreen embrace
To repair this despair
To save our human race.

This world needs
Philosophers and scribes
Bards and dancers
Magicians and rhymes

This world needs more love
Less hate, less misery

This world needs more poets
Like you, like me.
