A World I Would Love

    - Ashley Phimphanh © 2017


There is only one world
That I would love to live in.
A world where man can help
One another without letting
Their ego get in the way.
A world where all evil
Becomes nothing,
But a small obstacle
In our journey towards
Our final destination.
A world where our contempt
For life’s cruelty
Becomes a driving force
In our work towards
Building a better societal structure
That promotes
And respect for others.
That is the one and only world,
That I would love to live in.
