A poem about humanity and hope.
Listen on Free Music Archive: “Mountain Creek”
Imagine you, just a big eye in the sky
Looking down upon earth’s plains
Valleys and mountain ranges;
Tell me, what would you see?
You’d see a world gone awry,
A world gone mad
People fanatically living in a superficial era
Lost but not knowing it,
Confused but not know why.
You’d see hardly any trees just a blanket of smog,
Of grime, dirt and dust,
Joseph’s coat blackened
By neglect and disregard.
As a big eye in the sky you’d see
Buildings thrusting heavenwards
Sore-thumbs covered in band-aids
Hunger, depravation, deceit and conceit
What can we do to make a change?
How can we find the peace and tranquility
We so desperately seek and need?
The source is within us all
We must turn within and explore our inner beings
Things can change if only each of us
Would take the responsibility
To care for our individual plots in life
So as a big eye in the sky, tell me, what do you see?
Is there hope for us?
Or are we lost?
I believe in humanity and that
There is a chance if only we look within.
