Leading the Way
The Earth has existed for billions of years.
Hi Everyone has their own theory as to how things got started.
One thing is for sure,
man has always had the freedom of choice.
The freedom to think, to speak and to act.
Perhaps our actions speak louder than words.
History tells us that.
Fear has reigned and is centuries old.
Older than the hills. Older than gold.
Fear of persecution for religious views, political ideas and wayward thoughts have kept us in the dark,
where it’s safe to hide and not set off any sparks.
One day, we will soon realize,
we are free when we stop living in the past,
when we stop arguing about who’s wrong and who’s right.
I look forward to the day when everyone can honestly say
“I will look the other way towards the light, towards a brand new day.”
with our hearts full of love and compassion for Human kind,
then I’ll know we’re in the right frame of mind.
