A view of the world
Just thinking, of war and peace
The never ending conflicts that affect you and me
Both here in America and across the sea
What a world this would be if only we could see
That the creator of you and me
Wants so much for us to know
Our panoramic scene of such a show
Of things that separate and hurt us so
It's not his will by any measure
It is peace on earth that gives him pleasure
For after all, we are his treasure
It is written; "his delight is with the children of men"
If this is true , then all men are kin
And how we relate is how we win
The best of this life and happiness within
We hear and see what's mostly in charge
As we scan the world at large
Not peace on earth and goodwill toward men
But increasing conflicts that never seem to end
Oh, there are pockets of peace, here and there
Would to God it were everywhere

|What a wonderful message in each verse. I enjoyed reading your poem today especially the verses oh, there are pockets of peace, here and
there, would to God it were everywhere. I wish peace was everywhere
and that all men could get along. Let's just contine to pray for
peace, love and harmony then perhaps someday this all will come to past.

|It is strange, when they go to war, that both sides have God on their side.

|Very impressive thinking, Thurman. This would be a better world if more thought as you do. And so well said!|
