When dry eyes can find no new tears..
When unhealthy bodies can find no
When wars can find no more soldiers
to fight them
When Humanity has abolished all of its
reasons to embrace its fears
When we find enough love to replace
all of our hate
When we celebrate no borders between us
When we willingly refuse to capitulate
When we grasp destiny and choose to define
our own time and fate
When we lift every child to its potential
before its own clock ticks to late
When we hold every adult accountable
When we refuse to be less than great
When we refuse to share what we have
When we replace our unwillingness to
When we no longer need imperfect ladders
When everything we desire is now within
When I can stretch across time and touch
your heart with a word a tear a smile and
When we have done all these things so
When you and I shall stand together side
by side and finally realize..
We have always been able to share and
live happily in this same time and space..
If not today When ?
