If More People Were Real

What Is Needed Is Here

Real People Expose Love





If More People Were Real,

There’d be more lovers around,

If more people were real,

More love would be found,


If more people were real,

There’d be less pain,

If more people were real,

More sunshine than rain,


If more people were real,

There’d be less sadness

If more people were real,

There’d be more gladness,


If more people were real

Less room for hurts

If more people were real

Lesser pants, more skirts


If more people were real,

We’d see truer smiles,

If more people were real,

Finding love takes lesser miles,


If more people were real,

More people'd be living,

If more people were real,

There’d be more giving,


If more people were real,

True love would come out,

If more people were real,

They’d be what love’s about.

If more people were real

We would not have to cry

If more people were real

There wouldn't be a need to try

To be better, to be cool

Life would be like a feather

Without people to fool.

To Be More Real

People should use their ability to think before reacting at all times. People should appreciate all things given to them. People should be patient in being able to go to and from. People should appreciate having a vehicle, obeying the rules of the road (never hurry to where you are going) and drive to the speed limits posted along their travel, being courteous to other drivers when they use their left and right signals to change lanes, make turns and etc.

To Be And Not To Be

Is the way to be actually. Be cool be not insecure, be not a fool, be your best for sure. Be honest and not a liar, Be always aware, be not caught in a fire. Be one to try love a lot, be not one that does not....

Hi Grandy, I thank you. I welcome anyone to add to this poem. I'm glad that you like them. Do you have a few lines to add? :-)

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez from Philippines on August 25, 2014:

The two poems go very well together. I enjoyed the poems very much!

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on June 19, 2014:

Thank you Raine, for stopping by and commenting/complementing on this hub. I'm sure your poetry will be welcomed. This community is full of bi-racial make ups. You are not alone. I would be more than happy to read and comment on your material as well.

Raine Law Yuen from Cape Town on June 19, 2014:

Very interesting and inspirational. It seems in our modern world people are conditioned to live past each other and not take the time to get to know the song of our soul. Love your work and insights. I have written some poetry dedicated to the spirit of bi-racial identity but not sure if it will be good enough to publish at the moment. Would love it if you can read it and comment.

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on June 18, 2014:

Thank you for stopping by teaches. Your visit was most gracious :-)

Dianna Mendez on June 18, 2014:

I it is such a simple trait, being real, but often hidden. Great thoughts on this topic and so well written.

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on June 12, 2014:

Hi Playdivadi, I'm glad you admire my poems. I try to write very meaningful poems and also music. Realism is what many people try to avoid but it is not avoidable. Sooner or later reality it must be met with. Thanks for stopping by and commenting :-)

Diane Denison from Cincinnati on June 12, 2014:

When people are not real they are lacking knowing the purpose of life in which those people "Ouch" will cause hurt and chaos. I like the poem it has meaning.

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on June 04, 2014:

Thank you Au fait, your thoughts are greatly appreciated here! :-)

C E Clark from North Texas on June 04, 2014:

Everyone has their own opinion (definition) of what REAL means here and everywhere else too. The point is that you have to determine what that definition is. Even once you do, it is likely that there will be many different definitions and some may not be as compatible with the others, etc.

It isn't an issue of my personal definition. I'm not one of those people who worries about whether or not other people are 'fake' or 'real.' People are who they are, and I have places to go and etc. No time to sit around worrying about whether somebody meets my criteria for 'real.' If they don't, so what? My time with most people is likely to be very short.

Sometimes I think people spend so much time worrying about whether other people meet their requirements/expectations that they have no time to enjoy life to any extent much less the extent that is possible.

Most people never see the big picture because they're too busy focusing on things they can't change, and things that are trivial both in the short and the long run. If you spend all your time trying to perfect every minuscule thing you encounter you won't get very far down the path.

Spend more time meeting your own definition of 'real' and less time worrying about whether or not other people meet it. None of us is qualified to judge another person's 'realness' until we ourselves have achieved the ideal 'real' -- whatever that is . . .

Thank you Faith, I was inspired to write this by another hubber in our community. You're showing up big time here :-)

Faith Reaper from southern USA on June 02, 2014:

Oh, what a lovely poem here. When we are genuine, our hearts are pure and we are able to love others in a real sense for sure!

Up and more and away

Bless you

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on May 30, 2014:

Alizabett Torres on May 29, 2014:

Wow! I Love It, brought some tears to my eyes. From the heart, true, pure and Real!!! :)

Hi DDE, Thank you for stopping by and for the great comment ;-)

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on May 29, 2014:

Great words here. People are different and you can only change the way you think.

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on May 27, 2014:

Thank you BlossomSB for your comment. You hit the nails right on the heads.

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on May 27, 2014:

Ok Au fait, if your definition of more people to be 'real' is different or off course from where I was coming from then let's hear what it is. Perhaps, I'll attach it to this poem. Your opinion is greatly appreciated :-)

C E Clark from North Texas on May 27, 2014:

Trouble is, everyone has their own definition of 'real.'

Bronwen Scott-Branagan from Victoria, Australia on May 27, 2014:

Lovely poem. It's so important to be real and true and not hide behind a mask.

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on May 27, 2014:

Thanks TDowling, that's the best way to be. Glad you stopped by.

Thomas Dowling from Florida on May 27, 2014:

A "real" twofer. Beautiful sentiments. I agree with MsDora. I strive to be one of the real people.

Peace, -TD

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on May 27, 2014:

joedolphin88, thank you for the very good comment. I will read your poem as well. Thanks again!

Joe from north miami FL on May 27, 2014:

Beautiful poem can really feel the way in which it was written. Beautiful and perfect writing. I just wrote a poem myself called Lucifer's Question and would lover a review of it from someone of your writing ability.

HappyMikeWritter on May 26, 2014:

word55: thank you. Of course you can use it. Have an amazing day :-)

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on May 26, 2014:

MsDora, Your prayer has been answered. You're as real as they come here on hub pages. Glad you showed up today. Thanks for the gracious comments -:)

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on May 26, 2014:

So there's a need for more real people. I agree that life would be happier. Lord, help me to be one of the real people.

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on May 26, 2014:

Good response oldies, I appreciate your comment. It taken very well. It was real. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Keep up your good work as well -;)

oldiesmusic from United States on May 26, 2014:

If people (especially someone you love) said the truth in the first place then there would be no more pain. If they will say the truth it's better to say it early. When you love a person deeply but that person has been lying to you and says the truth later than he should this is something that is so hard to get over with.

Sorry, if my comment gets a bit intense because I've experienced that before.

Beautiful work you have... thanks for your poem. I hope many more people will find comfort with your words. :)

Al Wordlaw (author) from Chicago on May 26, 2014:

Hey HappyMike, There's nothing to be sorry about. If you don't mind, I'm going to add your poetry to this to the poem. It shows more love. It serves the purpose. I am much obliged!

HappyMikeWritter on May 26, 2014:

If more people were real

If more people were real

To be better

To be cool

I am sorry, it immadiatelly came to my mind after reading your fabulous poem. I absolutely agree with your poem. Is pure and hearted. Thank you so much for sharing :-)
