    What must we do to advance mankind
    Do we feed the hungry
    Cure disease
    End all wars
    Will we have peace at last
    Will we see children smiling
    In Congo and Blefast
    Are we doing all the things we know we should
    Doing what's best for the greater good

    Treat everyone as equal
    No matter their life position
    Change for the better
    Our social condition
    See a man as a man
    Yes we can
    If only we could
    Love one another
    For the greater good

    There's a positive vibration
    In any situation
    Listen for it
    Hear it
    See it
    Develop the skill to share and understand
    The best of what God gives
    To a woman and a man
    This can be real if only we would
    Live in peace and love
    For the greater good

    yeah the greater good is good
    but man is a funny creature
    he wants to control
    he wants his cake
    but he don't want you to get none
    i wrote something to this effect
    in On the OUtside looking in
    full mental jackets

    but i think i would love it if
    life respresented your art here

    nice piece

    and the positive vibes
    along with the negative vibe is in EVERY situation (universal law)
    but suggesting the reader see the positive is great
    if only more people would do that
