Before It'sToo Late

Credit: unknown
Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace. Dalai Lama
watch the video

The mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy. What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls the butterfly. ~ Richard Bach

There are times when you want to get away


Running away from the beeping of your mind


You foster the pain in your heart


Letting it nourish the raw wound of betrayal ***



This world needs a giant sweep


Clearing away all the dust


Of hate and ignorance


Washing clean this intolerance***



Lifting a hand to hurt a fellow being


Inscrutable disregarded darkness


Oblivion to values of the soul


Creating incomprehensible anguish ***



Through time actions speaking


Louder than a drum pounding


The drone of the chaos echos


A deafening noise stunning our spirits ***



Please awaken the spirit of man


For tomorrow is already too late


We must strive for peace today


Shining within us our magnificent glory ***
