poem 0 comments challenge: Change

Do-Over card

if I could change anything...
I would go back in time,
give humans a do-over card,
a chance to do better.

if I could change anything...
I would teach love, not hate,
give kindness not coldness.
a chance at love.

if I could change anything...
I would take all the guns and
bombs and destroy them,
a chance at peace.

if I could change anything...
I would give every child a fair chance.
educate all children, no exceptions.
a (fair) chance at living.

if I could change anything...
I would change the way we think,
so our color would not define us,
so our shape and religion and
ancestry and gender and wealth did not define us,
so humans would not be put down for who they are.
no human being is illegal
and is one of us isn't free,
none of us are.
