    So much terror lurking just outside our doors.
    Too much despair and blues
    on our late night news.
    So many people needing so much to get from under.

    Looking towards tomorrow.

    Too much anger and hatred for one another.
    Not enough people willing to push one another onward.
    Too much death and destruction before our weary eyes.
    So many who will buried by the lives they struggle to live.

    Looking towards tomorrow.

    Too many men using and abusing women.
    Too many women allowing this to happen.
    Too many grieving mothers and fathers.
    Too many lost sons and daughters.

    Looking towards tomorrow.

    Too many people embracing hatred and intolerance.
    Not enough of us giving love or showing tolerance.
    Too many of us shaking the hand of ignorance.

    Looking towards tomorrow.

    So many precious lives wasted.
    Too many people living in utter despair.
    Not enough of us who care.
    If anything is to get better,
    we all must pull together.

    Looking towards tomorrow.

    Hi 1Poet,

    I'll hold your hand
    as we walk as one
    on this journey
    to awaken the world.

    All my love to you!!
