    Salute to Humanity ( Unrealized )

    So alone
    In this great big beautiful
    The eyes of a child your only possession
    All knowledge and every reason

    Life calls living from you
    Demanding your attention
    All your dreams lay before you
    Unanswered and then forgotten
    Without direction
    Without guidance
    To face each and every single day
    A constantly asking question
    “Must it be this way”

    Though the heavens wheel above you
    Through their glory of creation
    Laying eternity at your feet
    Still you are destined to seek communion
    Never to know
    Until the end

    And through your lives
    You struggle for love
    A definition to encompass
    What it is you feel
    To explain the point of your denied compassion
    A thing of blood and bone
    Just the same

    Throughout centuries you have lived
    The same stories
    Through millions of lives you have strived
    Growing through civilization
    With no point at all
    And although you are lost in delusion
    Suffused by confusion
    Searching ever for a solution
    All your theories remain mere abstractions

    All the children and all you have given
    All the wishes and all the patience
    All this burning, aching millennium
    All the love in your eyes
    You will one day

    Potential you have in abundance
    Yet to proceed from this isolation
    And leave this earthly prison
    The key still lays hidden
    Lost in a subject
    Buried in an object
    Whispering from music
    Calling from your art
    Yet still

    Time and centuries you carry on your brow
    Acceptance a silent burden in your eyes
    What else to choose
    Except continue to continue
    Hope and dream
    And wait for the door of death to open
    Without God
    Without direction
    You stand beneath the eternal and question
    Waking each and every day
    To continue

    Humanity I salute you
    In all your passion
    In all your love
    Even though we are lost
    This bravery, this courage continues
    And still we express the tenderness
    Though we are fraught with frustration
    Still we marvel and wonder
    At this unexplained

    Even though our cruelty for one another
    Shows only our desperation
    We seek to find a cure
    Innocent humanity I salute you
    Though the broken toys of our history surround you
    Still we resound with living
    Still we try to appease life’s desire
    Forever we remain searching

    All the love and all the life
    All the hopes and all the dreams
    All the turning, aching centuries
    All the light in your eyes
    You will one day
