I can imagine how it would be

if we would all just let each other be

Diversity allowed full range

No malicious gossip, backstabbing

put downs or violence


We would wander about all smiles no frowns

a serene and accepting world,

No hate only love unfurled

where we would greet and care

openly share, all were kindly honest


We would be so mellow without fear

Anxiety and depression would disappear

for with open acceptance, nobody shunned

all would be uplifted, embraced, have fun

laughter and joy would surely prevail …


this was my dream on waking this morning …
