Poem: If Only We Were Few…

If only we were few,

We would understand loneliness,

We would appreciate our companions

And embrace one another before death has its pride.

 

If only we were few,

We would validate ourselves as everyone should,

And understand the essence of happiness,

We would dance to the tune of child birth

And hug the old for the life they have lived

 

If only we were few,

We would have no betrayal, for only a few will know one another,

We would cherish the friends we have and flee from the scene of betrayal

We would know that war has no sense.

 

If only we were few,

We would tell a tale a million times and feel glad that it got to the ends of the earth,

We would educate ourselves over and over about the importance of he who must lead us,

And know that each and every one of us, plays a part in the society.

 

If only we were few,

Love would last,

It would scream when it is involved

And would assert itself when it is asked,

It will calm the craziest storm as it should

And tell its tale over and over sounding it like a re-birth.

 

If only we were few,

War would seem like an activity that would bring extinction

Battles would have no place as casualties will be but ourselves as it already is,

Death would have no pride

As we would know that death was enough to tell that life was all we ever needed.
