Remember This

From the same small speck  

It seems we all evolved 

If our world remembered this

Would our problems be resolved?

 

We’d lose the fear of one another 

Form a line hand in hand 

That spans across Earth, our mother 

With every woman, every man 

 

We’d preserve every creature

Protect them with our might

The sun would be our teacher

In the darkest places, we’d shine light 

 

Respect each person equally 

Drop barriers, disarm  

Fix disagreements peacefully 

Be bold, but bring no harm

 

Give to those with no benefits 

Pick up what’s blowing by 

Ignore the cruel and prejudiced

Think “we”, not “you,” not “I”

 

Remember the voiceless ones

Keep an open mind to the new

Be honest with ourselves, and run 

Into the future where no love is untrue 

 

From the same small speck  

It seems we all evolved 

If our world remembered this

The hate would be dissolved.
