If I was Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

Culture , Peace & Conflict , Health   Poetry


If I was a painter, I would paint civilization
Somewhere along the Nile a people of revelation

If I was a magician, I would have no fear
Snap my fingers twice let all worries disappear

If I was a pirate, I would sail and discover
Stolen property from Africa, my peoples treasure

If I was a sniper, I would take a good aim
At any place that manufactures weapons in peaces name

If I was a dream, here's what I would do
Allow every good dream I dream to come true

If I was a doctor, I would use my skill
Heal every innocent child wounded in the battle field

If I was a promise, than you could bet
That every promise made by presidents would be kept

If I was psychic, than all treaties will last
My soul would go in to the future and stop breakups from coming to past

If I was a preacher, My sermon would be
About how god wants all people to be loved brothers to me

If I was all these things
My last wish would be, that “I had a dream” speech would come true for Dr. King

Writting is like a weapon, you can use it in a positive or negative way. I try my best to use it positively by promoting the well being of society as a whole, and bringing up different issues that the world and humans face today.
