Dear John

John, I tried so hard to imagine the world
you saw in your mind’s eye

but we still kill with our religions
hunger and greed still rule

peace seems to be something
too out of this world

our possessions are way too important to let go
our warring countries come first

I tried so hard to imagine
what you imagined

so far I’ve had no luck
I guess there’s always mañana.
