Where are we headed in this world
Has fate predetermined our destiny
Are we destined to return to righteous,
Or have we travelled a wrong path for too long
Do we now search for non existent answers.
I clutch hope for its purpose
But is my grasp in earnest
It hurts when,
we try so hard to do right,
yet there are those who choose hate
and willingly display it before our eyes.
will they ever get a grasp of the spirit
or is self centered ness destined to reign over the wider humanity
Is the pain to great for some,
the anger too much in their ancestry to forgive
Then which becomes the greater sin.
Will we ever manage to move toward a common cause
Will we ever be able to rid leaders of the now necessary power of force
Will we ever be as one accord
Will we ever learn that love is the source.
Will our efforts be in vein
Will we have to witness the torture of humanities "realizing too late"
Will we continue to push tomorrow,
or will we learn to seize the day.
You are the light
and you are the way
You were a King among men
and my love for you shall stay
Teach me to teach,
teach me to reach
and teach me to be all I can be.
