The Great Divide



Now is the time for us to decide

How we will live through this great divide

There are those who propose to pull us down

Into misery and destroy our sacred ground

While others invite us all to unite

To live our potential and set things right

To basic rights can we all agree?

To be unharmed and be free

To do that which comes naturally

To treat each other respectfully

To live on our planet sustainably

To steward Earth’s garden carefully

On the other side is anger and pain

Only valuing money to gain

More possessions to ease despair

Trapped within the spider’s lair

Casting webs to catch what they can

Sucking life force to bring on the end

Now is the time for us to arise

Sending out love and to devise

Ways to reach and heal every heart

To open doors and to start

To bring together humanity

As one harmonious family

Helping each other find the way

Acting with kindness day by day

Knowing there is no wrong or right

No war to wage or others to fight

We’re in this together, each and all

We have a choice to rise or fall

A weaponized world will never be

A safe place for all, can we not see?

To lay down our arms we must all agree

To live together cooperatively

Finding solutions diplomatically

Respecting differences culturally

Now is the time for us to decide

How we will act in this time of divide

Dedicate yourself to make decisions

That bridge and heal all divisions

Live your love and ways devise

For us all together to arise

Spread your wings and open your mind

In every action it’s best to be kind

Holding your tongue and stepping back

If all you want to do is attack

Do your best to find another way

To communicate what you have to say

Compassion and kindness are the keys

To heal pain and answer all pleas

Through understanding we can proceed

To provide essentials that people need

Shelter, family, health and community

Right livelihood and freedom for all can be

Now is the time for us to begin

To take the steps so we all can win

A world that supports us to heal our pain

Where opportunities abound for us to gain

Lives of health and creativity

With love expressed passionately

Reach out to those on the other side

Begin to bridge the great divide

Ask what is it that they most need

Listen deeply to all and find what’s agreed

Create a bond and go from there

Expressing all the ways you care

Step by step through all our days

Invite others to consider other ways

To live together on our planet blue

Heart to heart, loyal and true

All peaceful actions now set free

To be expressed by you and me

Now is the time for us to decide

How we will live through this great divide

There are those who propose to pull us down

Into misery and destroy our sacred ground

While others invite us all to unite

To live our potential and set things right
