Day 259 – A Simple Poem For A Simple Problem

#YesAllWomen

The 365 Poetry Project: Year 3

Women are not playthings
and neither are men;
if we treated other humans with respect,
what sort of world would we have then?

If we put away our fancy words
our motives and the games we play
could we find a simple solution,
could we find a better way?

If we learned to love ourselves
not too much, but just enough,
would we also learn to love others,
and not to play so rough?

If I dumbed down my prose to be understood,
to give the world one more simple piece,
would the children understand and embrace it,
would they help us find some peace?
