utopia

For this week’s Writepiration Challenge Β Sacha has asked us to write about ‘Utopia’ and what it means to us.

I actually struggled with this, as although the idea of Utopia is brilliant in theory, I am not sure it would actually be that wonderful in reality. A case of being ‘careful what you wish for’ comes to mind!

Anyway, here is my take on it.

There is no such thing as Utopia

But if there was, for me it would be

Days filled with beautiful sunshine

And home would be right by the sea.

There would be no sickness or hunger

Crime would never exist

No wars, struggles, or conflicts

Or hospital waiting lists!

Everyone would be equal

Regardless of colour or creed,

Gender and sexual preference.

There would be no children in need.

But what if life were so perfect?

With never a worry or fear

Nothing to strive or save up for

Everything you need is right here.

Being constantly happy

With everything going your way

May get kind of boring

Like a Utopian Groundhog Day!
