What if we forgot all the strenuous turmoil?
What if trauma no longer tainted our souls?
And what if, we all could be innocent again?
….There would be a universe without havoc…
Moving…in perfect sync,
as the full moon danced brightly in line with all of our wishing stars…
and there would be no tears to cry,
or pieces of our heartbreak to pick up off of the cold ground.
Violence no longer would rule….
Could we become compassionate?
In a world where we live,
where everything seems frightening and so wrong,
we question, whether or not –
Can we be strong?
What if we stood up in a crowd where everyone sits down?
What if we took the time to sing out our inspirational message,
and told everyone of our journey –
Who we are….and where and when we became to be…
Would anyone listen?
We fear the silence….
and the rejection.
What if we forgot all of the turmoil…?
What if, love were to win?
