If All I Ask…

If all I ask is fairness
For all the people in this world
What would it be?

It would be for your happiness
It would be for your love
It would be for your future
It would be for your welfare

If all I ask is kindness
For all the people in this world
What would it be?

It would be for your care
It would be for your family
It would be for your society
It would be for your emotions

If all I ask is rightness
For all the people in this world
What would it be?

It would be for your safety
It would be for your strength
It would be for your freedom
It would be for your ability

If all I ask is justness
For all the people in this world
What would it be?

It would be for your peace
It would be for your progress
It would be for your mind
It would be for your soul

Hi Readers:
I couldn't come up with this verse myself. After reading the news on Israel/Gaza conflict, my emotional state went to gear and the thoughts came fast and this verse was written down. I was thinking of all the conflicts of the Middle East and it just keeps continuing. Is this area Blessed? or Cursed? I just don't know the answers:(

Readers:
I go into work daily each week and help or care for people. When I hear of war and conflicts; it tears my heart. Because it destroys, hurts, and brings people's dignity away from them. Just the total opposite of what I do as a living. This certainly is not right. And this in itself is why I write...

An author of verse, Carol

Think about this...There had to been a reason that Jesus was born here in Israel. Look at the problems we have here today...Few must believe in his word; truly. I often wonder why there is so much unrest?

Hey Carol, me again. This is most excellent. It certainly made me think. I like your style.

Sam:
As you can see, I'm always thinking! One time a person told me "that I think too much."
I guess I have an active mind that keeps going!

I really want many people to think and try to end all this "hatred" or something. But it starts in all of our emotions and hearts; the core being of a human.
