Attempt

Let us pretend

Life doesn’t end.

There’s no war,

No keeping score.

 

No one grows old,

Hungry or cold;

There’s always enough

When life’s rough.

 

No one knows

Pain or woes,

People aren’t shun

Seen as one.

 

Life isn’t perfect

We can’t neglect

Work to reshape,

Not to escape.

 

from The Complete Poems of BREVITY, a 99 cents Kindle Countdown Deal until May 24, 2018
