Y/ Paradise


Our world 'd be an amazing paradise
If we would just be always kind and wise
But all too often we cannot bother,
and then we're starting to hate each other
and in this way we surely jeopardise
our fabulous wonderful paradise

    Yes, it starts from the heart.....to some, even a humble abode is paradise! To others, a palace a prison. (Report) Reply

    Ethereal to live here as paradise, but great to try...and it never wrong to do....Paradise on earth is can be here when hearts of people be the stars that shine love and its magical beat to unify all livings and souls as one body_Soul (Report) Reply

    Nice straightforward write of what it will take
    to get rid of hate and live in paradise. But as
    you say we do not bother to take the time,
    hence I agree, will lead to our demise. (Report) Reply
