Imperfect World


Harmony

I see the world

as I want it to be

perfect in every way

Love, not hate

Peace, not war

Joy, not sorrow

Health, not disease

Unity, not discord

A green earth

flourishing, flowering

People living in harmony

Unfettered by borders

But the vision dissolves

to reveal an imperfect reality

Is what I see not meant to be?

It is not clear to me

when I look

through a glass darkly
