Poem – There will be a better world

This is not the place
There will be a better place
Where no more exist
The destroyers of the human race
No more the pain inflicting regimes
On fearful, frightened, human beings
This is not the place
There will be a better place

This is not the time
There will be a better time
When no longer anguished faces plead
While others foster gluttonous greed
This is not the time
There will be a better time

This is not the world
There will be a better world
Where respect and peace will reign
The need for power, no longer a stain
This is not the world
There will be a better world.
