“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than I

The child I am inside
Wishes we could all hold hands
Just for a moment
Before we overthink this
And stay like a picture
A picture that appears
When you image search “peace”


I wish we could paint
Sweet words
On the blank stone hard walls of the world


I wish us all to have that moment at some point
That moment when you take a breath
And it feels like it’s the deepest one you ever took


I wish we would all feel that joy
Like the one I finally felt today
The kind that stays strong and doesn’t go away
It lives inside you.


Let’s align ourselves with the universe
And each other
Tied up by this invisible string I envisioned once
Many years ago
This invisible string called love.

World peace is something that was going through my mind when I was five and blowing a wish on an eyelash. Its something that I pray for today. It is something we all want and it takes all of us to make this wish come true.

This is a very remarkable poem. The message that you sent through the poem is harmonious with a very delightful meaning that one day there will be peace in this world, and the first step to it is to love.
