Commitment

I commit to radiate gold clouds that sparkle and shimmer and hold us all in a heady embrace that is soft as a feather and warms the heart.

To radiate blue, true blue, solid as a rock and smooth as a stone,

a path straight from stability and order, a path as wide as an ocean but heading toward home.

To radiate the color of love, red, for the heart bleeding for those left behind.

I commit to radiate blue, true blue, solid as a rock and smooth as a stone,

orange for the passion for justice and righteousness, yellow for the dawn of a new day breaking forth,

the color of love, red, for the heart bleeding for those left behind,

white for the purity that enfolds us all.

I commit to radiate orange for the passion for justice and righteousness, yellow for the dawn of a new day breaking forth,

a path straight from stability and order, a path as wide as an ocean but heading toward home.

white for the purity that enfolds us all.

I commit to radiate gold clouds that sparkle and shimmer and hold us all in a heady embrace that is soft as a feather and warms the heart.
