A different world..?

Imagine....


John's fearless hands shivered at that point,
his cold blood made his heart sink inside a void.
And he trembled and failed just like before when the
hands of courage had forsaken him
and his fingers couldn't pull the trigger when Rathbone
fainted him.

What if Lincoln wasn't killed that day?
Would America and the world be the same?
Would his plans be laid and cemented?
Would civil rights for the freed men be effected?

....I would say
Days would be the same.
Lincoln had almost found the edge
of his pledge..
Slavery had almost vanished from the core
even before
we heard him knocking on the heaven's door.

Civil war did its job, although killing countless..
First industrial war for land over a relationship so
boundless.

There will be no scratch on his image if he hadn't died.
America and the world wouldn't have been that
different, since one man can't out play the man behind
the skies...
