In A Perfect World
Author: Barbara Goodhew


People would be considerate.
We would be kind and to others not berate.

Thinking of the feelings of others before we speak,
Not saying things that make others feel meek.

Love out of caring and understanding.
Not out of lust or conquest.

This isn't a perfect world.
