Hope for the World
(Inspired by a Mark Rothko Painting)
Anger, what has our world become?
Pollution, smoking, and all sorts of bad
Things. What has our world become?
As Earth orbits the sun, as more time
Passes, anger conquers our
World. What has our world become?
Look at our oceans. There’s trash
As far as the eye can
See. What has our world become?
You hear sounds of anger
All around. Even you have felt the
Pain. What has our world become?
But do you see that white line?
That is hope. Hope for our world.
So, as you look around, ask yourself,
“What can I do to help this world
To conquer anger, as it did conquer us?”
