New World

Let’s not talk about a new world

As opposed to this one

This ugly one we’d like to be rid of

And the new one that exists

Somewhere in the future

~

Let’s talk about the new world

That lives within us

Born from our ancestor’s mistakes

And their wisdom

Let’s talk about the new world

That isn’t a private dream

But a shared experience

That pulls us together

And builds itself

When we live our own truth

~

Let’s not talk about a new world

This endless talking

That masks our dissatisfaction

And all too often

The more we talk

The more impossible it all seems

And perfection just seems hopeless

And though we feel a drive to go on

Our minds begin to shut down

~

We are the new world

Every moment new

Everything we do

And say

Carries the new world

The new world is the love

And the freedom

The innovation

The innocence

The compassion, the joy

The forgiveness, the wisdom

The peace, the ecstasy

The light and the purity

We carry within us

That want to be shared

That carry us along

And draw us to others

Who are ready to receive

~

We can’t wait

For a golden age

Because waiting is a place

In itself

And you can be there forever

If you never leave

~

The here and now are open doors

They don’t check ID

No special qualifications required

No background check

Here, you are equal

You are already perfect

And you are welcome
