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 ***
