This is very sweet! I adore the childish fantasies you included in the beginning and how you tied those fantasies in with the overall idea of making the change start with yourself. Great Job President!!

This is absolutely amazing. The innocence of a child is always so beautiful but in the end it will always be shattered by reality. Great job on this emotive poem~!

That's really deep, but don't worry the world is changing everyday. One day we will see a world with no war, hunger or climate changes. Believe in what you want and do small things to accomplish it one step at a time :)

Thanks, but atleast one of them will happen, as the world will some day run out of oil (hopefully) :D

Wait how does running out of oil help with no war or hunger?

It doesn't. I mentioned climate changes too. We use oil in most of our machinery and to generate power. without oil we would have to change that, so that we use "Green energy" insted.

Using green energy would still not stop climate changes, just delay it though :/

You sure? The climate changes are due to the amount of co2 in our atmosphere. If we stopped emitting it, then the changes would stop, as the earth naturally would get rid of the extra co2. Atleast that's what the knowledge i've gathered through many years are telling me.

Yea but Animals and Humans emit Co2 aswell, And we keep growing and growing in numbers.

This was a very beautiful poem, it shows how children have such a pure mind but reality seeps in as they get older. It is truly sad but your poem was really great :D

This is awesome. Like palesile said, your rhyme did confuse me, but it is good you had fun. The rythim though was by far more perfect. This is good.

Your rhyme scheme got a tad confusing at times but overall this is not bad. It seems a bit childish at the start (in a good way!) and then it's like a dose of reality. You've created that moment somewhere in here where the child is no longer a child. They are still innocent but not naive. Good work!
