TOGETHER

It was something his father always told him

a truth he wanted known

He’d say, son, together we are greater

than either one of us is alone

 

He’d say, If we want to make our world a better place…

we must blend together every seed of knowledge ever sown..

for together we are greater than any one of us is alone…

 

We must turn our disparities into strengths, he’d say 

and not let our differences be overblown

for together we are greater than any one of us is alone…

 

We must realize how we need one another

and understand something the Earth has always known

that together we are greater than any one of us is alone…

 

He died…but his message has stayed with his son

and now that he’s on his own

He is stronger knowing his father’s with him…

 

than he could ever be alone.

Where no one knows

Folder: 
All and nothing

 

Take me away, where no-one goes to,

where the sea of green,

greets the sky of blue,

 

Take me away, where no-one will see,

the rip-tides unfurling,

forth-righteous and free,

 

Take me away, where no-one will hear,

the upsurges' tolling,

as the bar draws near,

 

Take me away, where no-one will go,

where fallen fronds vanish,

'neath a heavenly blow,

 

Do, take me away, where no-one has been,

where the sky of blue,

seals in the sea of green.
