IN A PERFECT WORLD

 There would be no crime, no hurt filled minds,

 Not a broken heart, no sorrowful cries.

 No reason to say goodbye if no one went away 
 Or died,

 Trash on the ground would not be found.

 No hungry souls, no suffering for the old,

 Prejudice and hate would not look you in the eyes.

 No thought of murder, no wounds of war,

 Not a lie from a tongue that causes pain,

 Emotional scars would never be claimed.

 In a perfect world there would be no fear,

 Not a poisoned word heard from an ear,

 In a perfect world, heaven is the word.

           Keith Garrett
