But there is also love

Oh yes

there is

violence

hatred

destruction

pollution

murder

crime

disaster

homelessness

war

poverty

Oh yes

there may be

struggles

tears shed

loss

confusion

But even more

there are

sunny days

flowers

beaches

forests

animals

plants

awards

and even more

love

friendship 

laughter

smiles

hugs

kisses

dances

skips

fun

and large amounts of

support 

truth

comfort

help

Oh yes there is bad

but even more there is good.

Oh that tragedy that you may feel.

or hopelessness

is partnered

by its positive opposite

making this world

our world

brighter

happier

lovelier

much love

many things to love

love love love love  love love love love love love love love love love for one hate

smile smile smile smile smile smile smile smile smile smile for one frown

beauty for just the slightest bit of darkness.

This poem is about: 
Our world
