A poem from 'Growing Up, by Dr Audrey Coatesworth - wondering how the world would be if there was more love and less greed and violence.

Listen to this poem as a song - music by Jamie Izak and sung by Ella - if this link does not go to the song page on the site below - go to the site, then poems/songs/ a perfect world. Now as a 'sing along' video.

A Perfect World


In the early hours of the morning

As the moon shines up above

I wander the house, thinking

What could be done by love


Wars would cease and hunger

Would be ended as all spare grain

Would be shared with those in need

Without any thought of gain


No injuries caused by wicked hand

The reason no longer found

Everyone would walk in peace

Upon earth’s fragile ground


I see people of different races

Laughing in light so bright

Children playing, free from harm

Walking safely, day and night


But then I realise it is make-belief

I make a drink, go back to bed

I sleep till morning, awake to find

That world only in my head


Can you help change this world of ours

Will you make a happier place?

How better than a world of tears

Would be a smile on every face
