"Fate is like a strange unpopular restaurant, filled with odd waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don't always like." - Lemony Sniket

If I could change one thing,
Just one thing
What would it be?

Would I change the color of the sky?
Or maybe give humans the ability to fly,
I could change the food in schools?

Should I make us all the same?
Oh no wait!
I know what I would change.

I would keep everyone different
Different colors, shapes, sizes
Just as God made us.

The one thing I would do
I would get rid of the hate.

Racism, sexism, anti-Semitism
Hate towards all people big and small,
I would get rid of it all.

No more hate.
None at all.
Not a spec on the planet.

I’d get rid of all the hate
And put nothing but love in it’s place.

I wrote this poem for a scholarship and the topic was If there was one thing in the World you could change what would it be?
