A Better Place

Take me down the river

through golden, shimmering mist.

Take me to the land you knew,

a place that once did exist.

 

Hold my hand yet gently

and guide me to the past.

Perhaps we can make changes there,

our roles can be recast.

 

For mistakes are hard forgotten

and horrors hard to ignore.

Perhaps we’ll learn to live in peace

upon these shimmering shores.

 

Domination has done nothing,

but soiled our hearts at best

it’s ridiculed the weak and poor

and created souls unrest.

 

If we learn to live together

change our mentality

the world would be a better place

let’s do that – you and me.

 

SJ, 2012
