We Need More!

We need more love, to supersede hatred,
We need more strength, to resist our weaknesses,
We need more inspiration, to lighten up our innermind.
We need more learning, to erase our ignorance,
We need more wisdom, to live longer and happier,
We need more truths, to suppress deceptions,
We need more health, to enjoy our wealth,
We need more peace, to stay in harmony with our brethren
We need more smiles, to brighten up our day,
We need more hero’s, and not zero’s,
We need more change of ourselves, to change the lives of others,
We need more understanding, to tackle our misunderstanding,
We need more sympathy, not apathy,
We need more forgiveness, not vengeance,
We need more humility, to be lifted up,
We need more patience and not undue eagerness,
We need more focus, to avoid distraction,
We need more optimism, not pessimism
We need more justice, not injustice,
We need more facts, not fiction,
We need more education, to curb illiteracy,
We need more skills, not incompetence,
We need more challenges, to make attempts,
We need more talents, to create the extraordinary,
We need more helping hands, not stingy folks,
We need more efforts, not laziness,
We need more jokes, to forget our worries,
We need more spirituality, not mean religion,
We need more freedom, not enslavement,
We need more peacemakers, not revolutionaries…
with these, we create an heaven on earth.
― Michael Bassey Johnson
