    if I had my way...
    every one would be happy
    simple as that
    there would be joy enough for all
    and it would never come at
    someone elses expense
    all lies would be exposed
    all questions asked
    and answered with the light of truth
    not lies called truth
    but truth as true as light is light
    all hate would be destroyed
    and love would prevail
    goodness would be the norm
    and dirt would be the exception
    all eyes would be open
    so that evil would never take root
    and grow or fester
    and peace would blanket the world
    like an ocean of air
    I would wish peace and prosperity for
    my enemies
    for those who would love to see me
    stay down(its not enough for them that
    I've been down so long)
    and not because of some lie or half truth
    or grossly distorted story they been told and told
    but simply because their soul can't stand
    to see mine do any good
    I would wish them love and longevity
    but not so they can mess with me
    or keep tryin' to destroy my life
    love would surely be the way
    all ears would be open to the truth
    of those who sow seeds for hate
    and those who sow for love
    and only love would be accepted
    if I had my way
    yeah, if I had my way
    I'd be fo' sho' focusin' on solutions
    to our problems as a people and society
    and not be ever caught up in
    some ole crazy drama
    If I had my way
    no forms of exploitation would prevail
    no cause that sought to harm another
    would live past it's inception
    and there would be a death of deception
    because it is never helpful
    and only does one kind of damage
    or another
    if I had my way
    I would teach and learn teach and learn
    nothing but goodness
    because nothing else
    even begins to make any sense
    simple as that
    if I had my way
    I would seek and pursue good
    and leave off of evil
    only a hater could hate on that there...
    but If I had my way
    wouldn't be any...

    give the man his way...coz i be liking what he be saying.

    if i had my way
    everyone would say
    "much love, my brutha"
    "you're looking nice, my sistah"
    you wouldn't need to say MISTER
    coz we'd be on a first name basis
    there'd be no hatred between the races
    we'd have love for one another
    enenies and lovers
    and we'd say to one another
    "onelove"
    and mean it

    if i had my way:)

    Now that's what I'm talkin' about.
    When I say onelove to ya baller,
    I got no reason in the world not
    to mean it. I mean did you rob me? lol
    or are you tryin to bury me somehow?
    So I got nothin' but love for ya!
    I believe we are on the same page
    so may we both get our way.

    Man, Rich, I wish you had it your way brah!
    then I'd have a home for one thing lol
    instead of just barely gettin' by.
    I believe that we all want the same good
    for "we"(everyone). maybe we bring heads
    together and figure how to make a way...
    Peace family!

    I see you as a gifted soul, Cindy.
    for one thing not everyone can
    right poetry.
    also, ;) I hold this truth to be self-evident
    that all people were created equally.
    without this belief in this truth, I don't
    have a leg to stand on about most
    of what I believe...
    Much love to ya, Poet!
