A HAPPIER WORLD
 
Let’s shake hands
Interweave them with smiles and goodwill
And make the world happier!
 
It’s not a utopia
It’s a message of love
Love unites and strengthens
The soul magnifies
And only for love
We will be happy
Each one of us
We are part of the World
If there is more love in each
If we shake hands with other hands
A new world will emerge
More balanced and more brotherly
A world where peace reigns!
 
We will make a happier world
Where it gives much joy to live!
 
Why does love
Should be a utopia
Love is a reality
That many people don’t know.
 
The lack of love
In the most varied forms
Destroys peace
It should be a utopia
An unattainable dream
Something nobody
Could reach!
 
 

A TOAST TO WOMAN

I lift my cup
to salute the strength,
the courage,
the righteousness
and the empowerment of women.

A toast to woman !

A strong being
with a backbone
straight and upright
that bursts into tears
for someone who suffers.
That remains relentless
and determined
in the face of adversity.

I like being a woman!
