a single leaf on life's eternal tree,
one new cell pulsing through immortal veins,
a drop of water in the human sea,
one wispy string of grass grown in the plains.
Though different we all are part of one soul.
Our dreams and wishes bind us sacredly.
The human spirit shines from pole to pole,
so sing of progress, peace and unity.
But if our breathing planet flies astray
and plunges into dark despairing flame
can we escape, break free, and fly away?
And if we don't should we feel pride or shame?
- If the ocean current is already set,
perhaps there’s nothing for us to regret.
