Poem

New plan

Let’s start a fresh life in a new plan
Let’s change the world
Forget the old ideas
It is to action, not in word

I am not Mr Barack Obama
I want real change from the roots
All we are equal humans
We aren’t robots

I’m looking to happiness among misery
All things seen by my eyes –
I don’t find it in the Middle East
Then I ask myself: Why?

All we suffer from the suffering of others,
Our happiness depends on the happiness of others
Can we find sweet confection in a bitter land?
Can we be happy with these severest of bothers?

I believe over the centuries
Capitalism is trying every way:
Only the hold of a foolish mind on earth
Only to keep fossilized ideas always

Accumulation of capital means great harm
Stair to stair for keeping power
From stress, fear, lies, inclemency
Till cruelty and crime cover all

The earth has room for everyone
And the best will come gloriously,
If we expand our perception, our wisdom
And put love in gleaming laws
