"If" ~ A poem from Rosie Chittick, age 11
missjulie about almost 3 years ago
If we figured out, the Earth was round
Then surely we can live in harmony
If we discovered that there were stars,
Then surely we can share peace among us
If we could relearn, that some things are bad,
Then surely we have no need to wage war
If we can sit, warm and contented
Than why must our friends be miserable?
If we could invent, the gyrocompass
Than why do we always lead in the wrong direction,
If we can be kind,
Then why do we choose to not be?
- Rosie Chittick , age 11
