HAIKU POEM
ROSALIENE BACCHUS
There's a place in your heart
and I know that it is love
and this place could be
much brighter than tomorrow

And if you really try
you'll find there's no need to cry
In this place you'll feel
there's no hurt or sorrow.

There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
make a little space
make a better place...

Heal the world
make it a better place
for you and for me
and the entire human race.

There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
make a better place
for you and for me.

If you want to know why
there's a love that cannot lie
Love is strong
it only cares for joyful giving.

If we try we shall see
in this bliss we cannot feel
fear or dread
Stop existing and start living.

Then it feels that always
love's enough for us growing
Make a better world
Make a better world...

There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
make a better place
for you and for me.

Heal the world we live in
save it for our children.

Heal the World
(Excerpt)
by Michael Jackson
A BETTER WORLD
MICHAEL JACKSON,
born in Gary,
Indiana, was an
African American
music producer,
dancer, songwriter,
and singer.

At a young age, he
became the lead
singer of his family's
group, the Jackson 5.

After initiating his
solo career at the
age of thirteen, he
went on to achieve
great success,
earning the name the
"King of Pop."

In 1982, he released
"Thriller" which
became the
best-selling album in
history.

Allegations of child
molestation in 1993
hounded him for the
rest of his life.

In Los Angeles,
during preparations
for the launch of his
2009 comeback tour,
he died of cardiac
arrest.

What we need to learn from children isn't childish. Being with
them connects us to the deeper wisdom of life, which is
everpresent and only ask to believe. They know the way to
solutions that lie waiting to be recognised within our own
hearts. Today, I would like to thank all the children of the
world, including the sick and deprived... I am so sensitive to
your pain.
~MICHAEL JACKSON FROM HIS SPEECH AT THE 35TH GRAMMYS 1993.

We have to heal our wounded world. The chaos, despair, and
senseless destruction we see today are a result of the
alienation that people feel from each other and their
environment. Often this alienation has its roots in an
emotionally deprived childhood. Children have had their
childhood stolen from them. A child's mind needs the
nourishment of mystery, magic, wonder and excitement. I
want my work to help people rediscover the child that's
hiding in them.
~MICHAEL JACKSON FROM HIS BOOK OF POEMS & REFLECTIONS, DANCING
THE DREAM,
1992.
