THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “After Annunciation” by Madeleine L’Engle: have, reason, filled, when, room, child, love, irrational, blooms, wild, season, bright
Lots of things happening in the world
Why can’t people be good or give it a burl?
Seasons come and go, goes bright and dark
Celebrate or just enjoy walking in the park
Flowers bloom, animals run free in the wild
Have an ice-cream that made us smiled
Children get killed just watching fireworks
Why can’t we not accept people with their quirks?
Some irrational person drove his lorry through
Life is not fair, people dying in our full view
It hurled people and left them lying on the promenade
That wasn’t right, a system so fatally flawed
Is there a reason for all this, is the world indifferent?
Are the people so selfish and have lost their fair judgment?
To our needs, sufferings, are we dissimilar from the rest?
Societies don’t care, which left a lot of people depressed
Can we not fill the world with love instead of hate?
And when we’ve achieved that, life would be great!
