‘If I Could Change The World I Would…’

Darola’s Post got me thinking.

…and Madonna sings, “NOTHING really matters, LOVE is ALL we NEED, EVERYTHING I give YOU, all comes back to ME”…Powerful words I’d say…
See those words in caps? They shouldn’t be taken lightly. God is Love, if I could change the world, I would put God in all our hearts because God is Love and that is all we need, not want, but need.

If I could change the world I’d SIMPLY revert it back to how God intended it. See man fell in the garden of eden and he has been falling ever since. From cain, to the tower of babel, fast forward to the two world wars and the present crisis all over the world. Are we getting better? Really are we? Your phone is the latest, the best available but are YOU getting better?

God made us to love and to protect but we keep destroying this beautiful world He gave us. Oil spillage that’s left uncleaned, chemical weapons are used on humans and precious animals are hunted into extinction. How can we say variety is the spice of life when we kill everything in sight? We kill endangered animals, destroy the ozone layer, level forests, poison our waters and the likes.

If I could change the world I would make sure every human knows that each human life is invaluable and should be taken care of and that nothing in this world is more important than a human being. I would make sure men lead their families at home and to church and made time to groom their kids. I would make sure kids have both parents and are properly taken care of. I would make us all realise that there is nothing that can be compared to touching a human life, nothing.

I would make sure ignorance is a crime. I mean why would Nigerians for example fight over the proceeds of crude oil when we have fallen behind in other areas we have been blessed with? Is it in agriculture? Energy? Mental ability? Mineral resources? Tourist attraction? Entrepreneurship? You just name it. The knowledgeable ones have decided to monopolise it and to keep us ignorant thereby causing death and minimal progress.

If I could change the world, I would make sure we realise that each time we deviate from God’s plan for humanity, we find a ”solution” that pushes us further away from the plan and indeed what we deem as progress is in actual fact a retardation. God had a plan of peace, of love, of freedom, of ease, of life!

I can’t change the world but I’d do my best. Through my personal out look I’d do my best. By blogging about what I feel we need and might not want, I’d do my best. By trying to live a life of example, I’d do my best. By praying this brief and undetailed post is enough to get you to act, I’d do my best.

But why should I take the glory alone? I’d rather share it with you. Why don’t we change the world together?

‘If I Could Change The World I Would…’

The first guy post by Blarrqwyat.

If I could change the world,
I’d start on my knees,
Saying a prayer for the leaders,
For those on the seat of power.

If I could change the world,
Stopping its descent into the darkness,
I’d shine my brightest light,
And teach the word that brings sight

If I could change the world,
I would paint the streets with love,and
Plant smiles on every face,
Sending cheery sun-beams to the darkest place.

If I could change the world,
Every frown would be upturned,
With a snap of my fingers
Happy thoughts would dispel tumultuous clouds

If I could change the world,
I would start with my front door
Be a little more cheerful,
Singing a little louder in the bathroom.

If I could change the world,
I’d walk with a spring and dance nimbly,
Sharing a funny story in traffic, making total strangers fall in love with me.

If I could change the world,
I’d hug more and smile with a mischievous grin,
I’d live life knowing its not about me,
But really all about Him.

If I could change the world,
I would!
I can change the world …
Watch me do!

If I Could Change The World I Would…

Talented Writer Abimbola Oladapo shares her mind.

If I could change the world, I would change the mentality of the people of the world. I would re-structure the basic values system. I would.. I would… *sigh* A thousand and one things summed up in one, if I had only one chance, I would show to the world the right Road, the Reality, and the one Life-way- the Christ.

Funny, just like you, I’m only given that ONE CHANCE! One chance to “change” the world.. One chance to show the world the Road to follow.. Howbeit?!- My choices!!
I can CHOOSE to wear a constant attitude of love and kindness to all and sundry, whether or not they are nice or un-nice.
I can CHOOSE to make sure the few and un-few words that come out of my mouth bring life to the hearer(s).
I can CHOOSE to lend a helping hand to that old lady I met at the bus-stop- the one who almost tripped over.
I can CHOOSE to eat my gala and keep the wrapper until I get to the nearest trash can where I can discard it..instead of littering the floor like everyone else.
I can CHOOSE to…
I can CHOOSE to…

I can always CHOOSE to…! MY Choices are the ONLY determining factor.
YES!! I can show the world the Christ. I can give the world the Christ.. Only by my little actions, my words, my deeds.. and starting with my immediate environment- my dance group, my faculty classroom, my face-me-i-face-you room…
This is my reminder: If I can’t change my private world, I cannot change the public world..

WE got only ONE CHANCE (if WE could change the world…) .. I wouldn’t blow my one chance. Would you blow your’s?

Without beating around the bush, Toyin Oladapo tells hers in simple words.

If I could change the World I would make sure love was constant in it because I believe lack of love on ‘these streets’ is the basic root of all vices in the world today.
I would ensure that at the very least everyone in the world loved not himself alone but had enough love to go round other people.
If i could change the world it would be a world where there’s absolutely no fear in asking for help or pouring out your heart to another lest you be mocked or out rightly condemned.

‘If I Could Change The World I Would….’


If I could change the world,

I would paint colours on turmoil

With a hope that it springs a rainbow

No storm, just the clear bright heavens.

But I can’t.

I can’t change the world but myself.

I have no power to change the world.

I do hope for the world to change; I hope for a transformation.

I pray that the immorality of this world will be dusked

The lust of the flesh will be tossed out

The corruption of the soul will be chucked out

And the murderous eyes plucked.

But it’s a prayer.

I say a prayer for the world and not myself.

I have the power to change my whole.

I need for my whole to change; I need a transformation.

Yet my heart yearns to hear the joy in laughter.

My ears tingle to feel the strums of love.

My eyes glitter to dissolve the food of loyalty.

My malnourished soul craves to feed with the treasure of light.

I look around and see the world to blame.

My heart I set to anger aflame.

Curses upon curses on the deceptive world based on fame.

In these times, it is seen that death, love and lust are same.

Oh yes, I do wish I could change the world

But change it to what exactly?

A replication of me should do just fine?

But I’m yet to be changed; to be blameless.

Then will my heart leap for the joy in laughter.

My eardrums will play the tunes of love.

My eyes will throw up loyalty.

My nourished soul will be lightened.

I can’t cause the change unless I myself change.

‘If I Could Change The World I Would…’

Hello guys! I asked a few
friends to share what they would do if they could change the world. The next series of posts are not mine.


Taking a long look at the world of today, one can see that the entire world is in a state of moral jeopardy and decadence. The moral structures erected by our forefathers are in a state of dilapidation, doused with corruption. No one is left out, from the day old infants to the near death aged folks. This makes me wonder what would be of the coming generation. If it were in my capacity to change the world, so that the coming generation would meet a near perfect world for them to live in, I would.

Firstly, I would make sure that children and teenagers do not have free access to the internet; as it is the doorway to all sorts of unnecessary exposures. There would be measures to regulate the use of the internet amongst teenagers. Next, I would flush out the existing government and replace with sensitive, young and passionate people. Nearly dead people would not be eligible for being in government. I would put Christians at the helm of affairs; by Christians I mean spirit filled and led folks, not nominal Christians now; then there would be no case of persistent power failure, strikes of all sorts, and all the presently existing anomalies. I would make sure that the dreams of young people are financed by the government thereby encouraging the concept of entrepreneurship. I would put a ban on the importation of inferior goods and would promote the exportation of home grown and made products. I would fix the death holes that we have as roads, and free healthcare would be made available to all bona fide citizens of countries by the government. Education would not be neglected and taken for granted as it would be at the top of annual budgets. Abortion would be made a criminal offence and would be equated with murder. Rape would be punishable by castration and amputation. Wife battery would be punishable by amputation also.

I know it’s not possible to change the world on a large-scale and at once, but I am beginning in my own little sphere, my own world , and my influence will spread to the larger world.
