All These Problems | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

It’s so easy to fix
All these problems,
All you need to do
Is transform the ethos
Of people who would
Rather hoard everything
For themselves and
Introduce the idea that
It’s okay not to have
All the money or power
Or have to dominate
Everyone and everything;
That one can live a
Life of deep beauty and
Dignity with just the
Company of one’s own
Healthy conscience.
