A Better World

Cancer notwithstanding,

I can create poetry

that brings loving and positive responses.

Can I go further?

Is there a bigger statement?

My challenge is

Our challenge.

Our world is

grievously wounded.

Our official leaders

continue to fail.

Can we the people

create a better world?

Can we do it when we want to vomit;

When we are nauseous and uncomfortable?

Can we do it

Without knowing how?

Without any assurance of success

or even recognition?
