Бен Окри, "The world is rich"

They tell me that the world
Is rich with terror.
I say the world is rich
With love unfound.
It's inside us and all around.

Terror is there, no doubt:
Violence, hunger, and drought;
Rivers that no longer
Flow to the sea.
It's the shadow of humanity.

There is terror in the air.
And we have put it there.
We have made God into an enemy,
Have made God into a weapon,
A poverty, a blindness, an army.

But the world is rich with
Great love unfound:
Even in the terror
There is love, twisted round
And round. Set it free.

River, flow to the sea.
