Are we both vulnerable and strong
however contradictory this sounds?
Fragile in a world of dissonance
Yet strong in our love of planet Earth.
Its extraordinary patience and beauty
in spite of human’s foibles and selfish ways.
Are we destructive, yet also a dreamers?
Did we lose our way; our purity
in hunt of falsely glittering symbols?
Did we forget the joy of a touch, a smile;
The comfort of a shared laugh.
Don’t think we are masters of this
Our home among the stars.
We are but a blessed part.
Let us live the dream of harmony,
Harmony between oceans, land and mankind.
