Change the World

by Tony   Mar 8, 2018

I want to change the whole world
With a line that I wrote
Rhyme it so smoothly
In your hearts it takes hold

Cascading through your mind
As its echoes unfold
From the chords of my words
And the truths that I've told

I want to write you a picture
And describe a scene
1,000 words to convey what I mean
It's the only thing that's been given to me
Just a love for writing
About the things that I see

I want to change the whole world
For the love of my girls
Smooth out the creases-
Forge a perfect pearl

Dance through a lifetime
And watch it unfurl
Picture perfect snapshots
Every time that they twirl

I want to capture them on paper
With the grace of my words
Cursive letters flowing to the beat of my verse
It may be a blessing, or could be my curse
My only form of expression-
Writing these feelings to words

I want to change the whole world
For this girl that I know
Remove her heartache
With the chill of the snow

Hike through the mountains
And together we'll grow
Share stories of our healing
Over a glass of Merlot

Imortalize this feeling
As it flows through my wrist
The irony of life and its romantic twists
I think she's the reason I put together this list
There's a spark that she ignited
When we first reminisced

    Crikey Tony! This is ace :-)
    The first three stanzas make you a mind reader frankly and you convey all of those things. And the rest is so poignant and heartfelt. Just brilliant. Really. :-) x

    I feel your poem helps with your cause, if only we could change the world. I have often wondered if we could change to our individual way, we could invite others to experience what we actually mean
    nicely done fella

      Thanks Michael,

      I look around me sometimes and don't recognise the world I grew up in. I used to ride my bike to school in 2nd grade, and I could not even begin to imagine my daughter doing that. Its sad.

    Love the unique rhyme scheme in this Tony and
    "8 want to change the whole world
    For this girl that I know
    Remove her heartache
    With the chill of the snow"
    this says it all

    Take care
