Poem Post 5: A Noble Dream

This is the story of a Boy and Girl
Who shared a noble dream
Dreamed for the world, the two youths did
Determined to live it, they seemed

They both believed they could fix the world
A world destroyed by war
A world of weapons, lies and hate
Of nations gone too far

Boy and Girl had never met
Neither knew the other
Boy had lost his Mom and Dad
Girl had lost her brother

Both too young to join the fight
Both too old to cry
They learned to live in a world destroyed
They watched how others die

So Boy and Girl stood up to act
The two began to lead
They stirred the hearts of people
They let their courage bleed

Boy preached nobly with his heart
Spoke with a striking blow
He gave speeches to the masses
And let his message flow

Girl spoke to the people, too
But with words on published print
Her pen was her great weapon
Writing was her stint

So Boy and Girl rose up the ranks
For influence led to power
The seeds of their planted message
Grew and began to flower

It seemed that with them in place
The war long-drawn would end
But the story is not over, no
Far from it, reader friend

For Boy believed in one thing
Girl believed another
Their minds and hearts did not agree
And then they met each other

Boy told Girl of his own plan
But Girl just shook her head
Then Girl asked Boy to read her words
Boy just cursed instead

In Boy's hands was half the world
In Girl's the other part
They told their people to fight for peace
To give their soul and heart

Boy forgot about his dream
To make the whole world better
And in Girl's words the dream was gone
Not in a single letter

Dear reader friend, I hope you wait
For another tale unfurls
It is about the noble dream
Of another Boy and Girl.
