Waiting

January 20, 2014 at 6:49 AM

I am the daughter of mother earth
I am the tears of the mountains, joining the rivers; together we join the oceans
I am the lover of earth’s forests, oceans and mountains
I have climbed the hard mountains, seeking freedom, hearing of freedom
I have traveled across the world, seeking liberty, talking of freedom
I have followed our thinkers; listened to their speeches, seeking a liberated world
I long for peace on mother earth; and still I am waiting
I dream of a united world, with no war and no slaughter; yet hopelessly only wishing it, not tasting it
I walk around like a wandering gypsy and wonder how many are busy with life's illusions, not living life
I still climb the mountains, roam the forests, enjoy the birds, and talk of love,
Yet the ones around me are oblivious to the real me; the real me is bleeding,
watching the apathetic people around me...

You are the power behind me, next to me
You are the one who shares this world with me
You are who is making it grow and develop
You are who can contribute to its happiness
You are who can ignore the tyrant's bully, and let the cruel rule
You are who can make a difference or be indifferent

Have I given up the hope? Not yet
Have I waited too long? Indeed
Have I lost my trust?  Not yet
Have I waited for us to make it right? Indeed
