FOR TOMORROW, THE WISH CONTINUES

I was reading to my boy before we say good night,
The book was entitled "My Wish For Tomorrow;"
I was touched by the illustrations sketched by the kids,
And the children's aspiration about this world of ours.

They wish people wouldn't sleep on the streets anymore,
That everyone should always respect each other's point of views; Parents must not abandon nor throw away their toddlers,
And they want to see more happy children around them.

For the years ahead, they do dream of cleaner air,
o more pollution nor murder, no more diseases and wars;
They pray for a safer earth where youngsters of the world,
Can walk to school by themselves without fear or apprehension.

If we could only figure out what's in the eyes of a child,
We can eliminate discriminations, turmoil, hypocrisy, suppression; We can be more sympathetic, open-minded and selfless,
And the world we live in will be a better place to be.
