Even in the darkest of times there is always hope
there is always possibility of a new day.
Words that speak of justice, that work towards peace,
that give hope lifts all of us and we are then truly human.
when i hear words like this
there appears to be new texture
even bird song seems elevated
when i hear words like these
it occurs to me the dawn has an aureate glow
that the ocean sings in celebration
a heart on mute beats again
on pause wings again
from heart to heart like music in a round
into every dark corner like sparrows in a thorn bush
people will feel the chalice of humanity again
that is their gift to the world
