Given the changes in our world over the past few months, and the seemingly continual antagonism created by thoughtless individuals… and the predictable backlash from other equally thoughtless individuals, I thought that I would take the liberty of repeating “My Dream”. It will be appearing in my “Just Thinking” book which is currently in its final revisions stage before publishing.

My Dream

(Copyright Colin Chappell 2016)

I dream of a day

When we’ll all be friends.

I dream, as I look at the stars,

That the world will see

Being valued and free

Is far better… than destruction and war.


I dream of a day

When my friends are yours.

Although from quite different lands.

That you understand

All colors and beliefs

Are able to live in peace. Can hold hands.


I dream of a day,

Hopefully not far away,

When compassion wins in the end.

We’re all human after all.

We all stumble and fall

So let’s help each other up… and be friends.


I dream of a day

When the killing has stopped,

And peace prevails at last.

Borders are open.

Old vendettas are forgotten.

Past beliefs… will stay in the past.


I dream of a day…

But it is only a dream,

So many people will say.

Perhaps I am delusional?

Perhaps I am just a dreamer,

But to survive, we must find a way.


To break down barriers,

And to live together in peace.

It will be a challenge for some,

But why must we label

Our different neighbors?

Why can’t we become as one?


We all want respect.

We all want freedom.

Let’s open our eyes and see,

That we really do all want the same.

It’s really not complicated.

It’s peace… for you… and for me!


I dream of a day

When world peace is achieved,

And when the pen is the only weapon.

There will be universal love

And… to the power above I’ll say

“Thank you. Our Earth has now become Heaven.”
