YOUR BEST DAY (POETRY OPEN MIC, CONNECT AND HEAL)
 
That day would be the best day of my life,
When there is enough food for every, no one goes empty stomach that keeps them awake whole night. When no child or a mother dies of malnutrition. When people prefer to share food than wasting food to throw in a trash. When everyone has access to safe drinking water, a shelter to live, a piece of clothes to hide their body.
 
That day would be the best day of my life,
When I do not hear any news that says mass shooting at church or mosque killing several innocent people. There is no terror in the mind when your loved ones are outside and you pray for their safe return. When your mind sleeps peacefully without fear of losing the loved ones.
 
That day would be the best day of my life,
When no child feels unsafe inside the home because of the unpleasant touch by any family member or relatives. When house is filled with the child’s joy and laughter than sounds of scream.
 
That day would be the best day of my life,
When no girl feels scared with sweaty palms and fast paced heartbeats that her body and soul may be raped to give her visible and invisible wounds that would never heal. When both men and women are respected as human beings and they can walk fearlessly in both daylight and night.
 
That day would be the best day of my life,
When there is no force and fraud on human and no exploitation for labor and sex. When humans are loved more than used, and things are used more, than loved. When you feel rich for having an honest friend than few dollars.
 
That day would be the best day of my life,
When people stop using drugs that they use to overlook loneliness, worries, and stay away from daily mental troubles. When people have the mental strength as solid as the mountains of Arizona to survive all the storms and bad weather of life. When we spend more time in loving people than judging them.
 
That day would be the best day of my life,
When everyone is valued because of the color of happiness and love they paint around than the color of their skin. When someone’s character is more important than their wealth. When words from mouth are the words of heart.
 
That day would be the best day of my life,
When the entire world is one family, and like family we love each other and be there for each other, regardless of our differences in caste, color, traditions, customs, race, religion, language and gender.
 
You may think, my dreams are boundless as the vast sky and borderless sea. But, yes, I desire for this heaven when I feel free. All the wonderful people here, let’s love, live and laugh and lead.
