‘Make a Happier Land’

Dear Editor,

This is the poem I wrote and tried to read at the Ms. Parker County Pageant. Emotions distorted the words. People have asked for a copy of it, so here it is. I have very deep feelings about this and I know you will, too.

Make a Happier Land

This world is so mixed up,

so full of unhappiness, war and hate.

No matter if we are young or old,

We wonder about our fate.

Down all the roads we walk,

there comes trouble and tears.

If we can not be strong,

we can’t face the coming years.

It’s time for us to turn around,

and make things clear.

This land and time is ours,

to overcome all the fear.

Put a smile on your face,

take your brother’s hand.

Make life more meaningful,

make this a happier land.
