I will not be swayed by thoughts of doom
Scenarios of brutality amidst the gloom
By hidden agendas that seek to control
Our personal freedoms that keep us whole
I will rather cling to a vision profound
That will carry me to a higher ground
From where I can see and others inspire
To live in kindness and to love aspire
May all people awaken to the greater truth
That we are all connected, elders and youth
Nature and humans woven inextricably
Together, we dream a world that can be
Individual actions are where to begin
Awareness of thoughts that arise from within
By accepting our negativity
We can then transform it constructively
I ask myself before I speak
What is it that I truly seek?
Is there a way for me to gain
What I want without causing pain?
Are my spoken words true and wise?
Would it be best to compromise?
What will it take for me to find
True and lasting peace of mind?
When people live in harmony
A beautiful world this will be
Nature, humans and animals
Clean air and pristine waterfalls
This our garden we must be aware
How to attend, for each other care
With so much power some of us wield
From destruction and greed we must shield
The choice is ours, oh lords of the Earth
To heal our wounds inflicted from birth
Never project that others are wrong
Join together in life’s sacred song
United as one let’s take a stand
To live secure in a promised land
Where tolerance and love reign supreme
As one great family live the dream
