I Can Dream. Right?

I insist on being polite

And have raised the kids to be so.

I persist in believing there is kindness and good

Even when there are bullies and sadists, I know.

 

Why can’t we resist the urge to insult or taunt?

To hurt with words or deeds?

Can’t the world consist of more angels and givers

Than narcissists or brokers of power and greed?

 

Be a synthesist of hope and humanity

Cease and desist with the cruelty and hate.

Build bridges and bonds of love and faith

Spread honour, kindness and trust instead.
