Exploding car

What would happen…
If love took over my country?
Would we become a happy and united people
Where the world hears only happy news about us
All the time, on all the channels?

Would there be no tension, no worries, no anger?
No corruption
No fraud
No violence
No sound of gunfire
No rockets, no war, no suicide attacks
No killing?

Would there be peace and happiness?
Love and support and enjoyment and respect
Trust and forgiveness, kindness and sympathy,
Humanity and freedom?
Would people smile while walking on the street?
And sleep at home in peace and quiet
While enjoying life
without fear?
