The World Would Be a Better Place If…

Money isn’t such a hassle
Everyone has his or her place
No one is ostracized, no one is wounded
Everyone is accepted for who they are

Originality exists within its boundaries
No one is crushed, no one is beaten
None will be left behind, hands will be held
A sense of togetherness and unity is molded
Everyone is for all, all is for everyone

The shadows of the world are no more
The horrid darkness of judgment is long gone
Deep, deep within the Earth’s crust
Exists all hatred and jealousy
Old traditions are kept in heart
Love is freely given out

The light of elation never goes out
Stress and sadness are unknown
Everything remains where it belongs
Nothing’s ever lost, nothing perishes in entirety
The value of each entity is held close

Everything has appreciated splendor
Nature’s tranquility and scenery is relished
Fragile wings will flutter, crystal water will fall
Dew drops will appear, buzzing will be heard
Heaven will pour out onto earth through images
The radiant rays of sunlight shines upon all

At the late hours of night, the wolves howl away
The owls and bats are awake and alert, watching
Carefully sculpted silhouettes replace forbidding ones
Supernatural beings find what they sought
The nights aren’t just nights, it’s the day of the nocturnal

Explanation: The theme of this poem is focused on the changes in the world that would exist if the world was a better place, or what needs to happen in order for the world to be a better place. The simplistic theme is displayed by fantasy-filled imagery, where everything is said to be “perfect and peaceful.” The poem begins with the material focus of the world, then switches to the people and the mentality of togetherness. The poem then switches back to the world, but to nature, and ends with the aspect of night. The nocturnal part of the poem brings together the idea of the cycle of life, the ending with the night signifies that the poem is coming to an end, just like the way that people wind down after a day to go to sleep.
