where color or nationality won't matter,
where homes and lives won't be devastated, shattered,
where we will be able to worship God in truth,
where hatred and terror won't influence our youth,
where pain and sorrow won't cause us to feel deprived,
where we honor our heroes, when they are alive,
where we won't live in fear of more terrorist strikes,
where kids can be safe when they're out riding their bikes,
where education means something to be proud of,
where we are free to be with the people we love,
where people earn enough money to pay their bills,
where we can afford medical care when we're ill,
where all nations and peoples are considered free,
where anybody can be what they choose to be,
where anyone hungry will be able to eat,
where husbands and wives honor each other, don't cheat,
where our elderly won't be left, lost and alone,
where we stop blaming others, casting the first stone...
a world without walls.
let's drop the walls that divide us...
(((HUGS))) and love, karla. :(

|A beautiful dream for the world I agree, for some strange reason Aldolph Huxley's A Brave New World pops into my mind, I disliked much of the book, but loved this poem, keep it up!

|One world under God indivisible with freedom and love for all. Let's hold that vision until it is manifest into this world. Your poem is the future of mankind as I see God putting the vision in more and more. Our thoughts create this world and it shall be. For there is only perfection..man just needs to see it. Thank You for spreading this vision. Bravo!!!!!|

|"A consumation devoutly to be desired." William Shakesphere. What a beautiful dream for the world! If only it could be true.
But for now it rests inside this wonderful dream in this poem. Let God make it so!

|Wowie, Karla!! :o This is fantastic! The religious one is great, but the other is wonderful in it's layman's worth, like John Lennon's, "Imagine"...all the humanity that was focused in that incredible man is a gift, as is this piece, it is so simplistic in its message, yet, there is that yearning feel knowing we won't see peace for a good long time...like Lennon. :)

|These walls which separate are like borders between nations. They exist only on paper.
In our minds. But our hearts call this illusion of separation NONSENSE. Let the righteous burning in our hearts turn the paper to ash. Let the warmth of the fire in our hearts warm and soften cold, hard thoughts. Let the light of the flame shine as your words shine. In a radiance of unstoppable love. Amen
