sentimental daydream

We hide beneath our dream as meaning falls in splinters
cutting cruelly.
Yet we can still believe a future us realizes simple truths.
As we agree to find religious zeal to leave ill will behind,
design respectful rules.
Adding up wars’ costs, be sure to double.
Then multiply by the loss and the trouble.
Sweep brutality up out from the rubble;
build security with enduring peace to become
the world we want to see, people well and free.
When beauty’s smile could greet our eyes,
define new mornings as we rise, why would we
otherwise choose?
If we each could decide, what meaning would we will to advertise?
