Panacea

I hope that someday,
a day, good and gay,
we will find a panacea
for the diseases of the world.

for the greed
that grows as a weed

for the cruelty
that takes from the beauty

for the ignorance
that lessens innocence

for the selfishness
that fosters penitence

for the carelessness
that took birth from blindness

for the misery
that thwarts victory

for the poverty
that is such an atrocity

for the inhumanity
that pushes us to insanity

someday a panacea I hope to find
just to better mankind.
