Over and over the word remains,

hope springs eternal,

as the adage refrains…

Must we, should we, can we know,

where the future lies,

what does it bestow?

Our heartfelt wishes,

our deepest desires,

a path to world peace,

to get us out of the mire?

The crack is deepening,

wider and wider,

will we fall in– to begin again?

The choice is ours,

to stand up and fight,

but speaking the truth tis

surely our right.

The light appears

as a sliver until,

the beams become broader,

allowing us in …

Feeling the warmth,

feeling the love,

believe in the light,

fueling our dreams,

believe you carry it high

for all to see.
