    If

    I could

    write the world

    right



    I'd

    scribble

    recipes with an

    ingredient to expel notions of

    discrimination and bury any sentiments of hatred

    underneath thousands and

    thousands of

    kindhearted words until they are

    long gone and

    forgotten



    I’d

    jot down

    whatever

    word combinations

    for

    however

    long I'd have to, to get my

    brothers back to being their brother's keeper

    and my sisters to realize they’re

    greater than that which lies

    between their

    thighs



    I'd

    write

    cures for diseases

    and thesis to save endangered

    species



    I'd

    compose

    poems that could end wars

    and bring peace to all

    regions



    I'd

    write in

    every handwriting

    known to men throughout the Globe

    that, truly #all lives matter



    I'd

    script love in

    every heart that could override sorrow

    giving hope for

    tomorrow

    if I could write the world right


    I'd

    pen seeds

    in paragraphs to form

    chapters that could grow into wholesome books

    to educate the masses


    I'd

    write

    ancestral memoirs

    that could reiterate the important need for

    a village to raise

    a child

    I'd

    specify through

    scribe the roles of

    a wife

    of

    a child

    and

    in bold capital letters it'd read

    THE HUSBAND IS TO BE HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD

    I'd

    write

    a manual

    detailing mutual respect so all would know

    what to expect

    if

    I could

    if

    I

    could

    only

    write the world right

    I

    would

    then write me a world where racism and bigotry and unjust systems of their justice are no more. write one that reflects brotherly love and humanitarian caring and neighborly sharing and people baring their heart and soul for the good of all.

    write the world right, my friend.

    beautifully done.

    Every word of your poem rings true with altruistic aim; hitting its mark, artistically.

    BRAVO
