If leaves were diamonds
and dirt was gold
then poverty would be rid of,
at least from what I'm told.

If pride was replaced
with being humble
then hate would be gone
no more yellings or grumbles.

If death of a loved one
didn't hurt so bad,
there would be less pain,
not so many being sad.

If choices were black and white
then no mistakes would be made.
Life lessons would not be learned,
and people would always be afraid.
