If i were a builder..

by Michael   Oct 5, 2017


I would assemble; scaffolding
around our world, providing
platforms to help the construction
needed to build hope.

I would pour concrete;
into deepest wounds that
have bled; pain for so long.

I would take my trowel
and plaster over cracks; to
seal and restore all faiths
not spread blame; over each
persons right in their belief!

I would take bricks
and build confidence;
into communities
not walls to divide us!

I would take my brush
and paint a colourful
scene of unity; not
just gloss over
black and white!

I will take wood; carving
bridges into connecting lives;
not just to walk all over them

I would take cable and
feed energy; lighting up
lives; leaving no person
in dark times!

And..

If I really could I
would build hearts
of gold and place
one in
eac
h

..and very living soul

.. AND!

Finally..

..the ones who build bombs
will just need to dig themselves into
a BIGGER
