possibilities by Jennifer Louise Croft

i’ll stop
crying, writing
when happiness dont cost
a life
a son, a sister, a father or mother.

if one day
i can travel the globe
and see no nose
out of place
no discrimination
due to race, gender
when this world
does an about face
and stumbles upon
a friendly grace.

i’ll stop
when hope isn’t needed
parley doesnt have to be pleaded
and everything
given or taken
doesn’t involve a risk
to humanity
of starvation
homelessness
or our salvation.

i dream a dream
but it does seem
i’ll be writing
forever and a day
because i don’t see a way
my dream will ever come true.

i’ll stop
crying, writing
when happiness
doesn’t cost a thing!
