The World as I see it

The World As I See It
Twisted
Wound up tight
Billions of tiny rubber bands
Some together,
Wound, in love, as one.
Some apart,
Twisted so much that they become blind
And peace becomes a distant memory
Around and around they go
And
BANG
They break

Coexistence
Is the escape
They seek
Many wound together
Is better than one wound apart.

Some are poor
Some are hungry
Others run by greed
And some are blind,
Not to peace
But to violence
They wander the world,
Convincing themselves that it does not exist
No one they know has snapped
They haven’t seen it, so it therefore isn’t there

I sit and watch the news
I see the violence every day
Little rubber bands
Snapping
Like the sound of popcorn in the microwave.
I have seen the poor,
And I have seen the hungry.

I used to believe that one person couldn’t possibly make a difference;
That nothing could be done.
You see, the world, to me, is wound so tight
That people can’t even put aside their differences
And take a second to unwind
To see the world for what it really is.
Beauty, love, compassion…
For many wound together
Is better than one wound apart.

The World as I see it
