To traverse the seas & the rivers surrounding them;
Surmounting winters, what source is found within?
My only weapon on this journey past the mountains’ end.
Peace is a war of words ablaze:
Strategies to raise our consciousness;
Each time that song we paint we’re armed with this
Different range of blades & cartridges;
For the driving rhythms that make our hearts just lift
To the joy that life bade as honest gift.
We will conquer mistrust, babe: I promise this!
Rains & storms then drift, again to evaporate
And the elements of nature move on to collaborate.
The greatest art bridges souls
With a faith that cannot brake.
Brave that armor’s chinks,
Strong, & stand for change!
