If It Were A Perfect World...

If it were a perfect world, there wouldn't be
homelessness, hunger or hopelessness
If it were a perfect world, there wouldn't be
tears, trouble or tantrums
If it were a perfect world, there wouldn't be
power, pain or poverty
If it were a perfect world, there wouldn't be
wars, weight or worry
If it were a perfect world, there wouldn't be
grades, guns or garbage

But we don't live in a perfect world- not even close.
And even if our world was idealistic,
we still wouldn't be happy
There is always something else that we want, we need

Take nothing for granted, be happy to be alive,
and every morning, when you wake up
you might just find your world is a little more perfect.

Wonderful. It can keep me alive for the rest of my life. Thanx- Pradeep
Take nothing for grated, be happy to be alive... a perfect optimism! Great poem, a 10 from me. Thank you for sharing.
I like your optimism in the midst of a broken world. I still am the eternal optimist who believes life finds a way to burst through the darkness. Just look at the flowers, weeds, and grasses that manage to grow through sidewalks.
