What Would the World be Like?
by Erik Estabrook

What Would the World be like?

I wonder, while I light the parradigm of pain and expression
if anyones given more than they've taken?

what if nothing needed to be fought for?
what if every disease was curable?
what if love was a renewable source of energy?

I stand between broken and unnoted
as coveted as a drifter who never stops
as wanted as a being who has no thoughts

though my thoughts aren't yet a bridge and my body still sins
I can't help but move on love and give
and think what the world could be like
if we all consumed less, put forth our best,
and loved instead of killed.

We must allow ourselves the joy of loving through life more than we fear our living.

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will live as one.
