When

When dry eyes can find no new tears..
When unhealthy bodies can find no
more years
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
learned
When we replace our unwillingness to
teach
When we no longer need imperfect ladders
to climb
When everything we desire is now within
our reach

When I can stretch across time and touch
your heart with a word a tear a smile and
an embrace
When we have done all these things so
very well
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 ?
