World of Promise



Let us dream of the day

When we all get along

And a voice raised in shouting

Is made sweet with a song


A day when you're giving

Much more than you're taking

When a hand raised in conflict

Is outstretched for friend-making


Where differences settled

Without stress and trauma

Are accepted wholehearted

Bereft of false drama


Where bridges are built

Instead of destroyed

Most problems are solved

That we tend to avoid


When wishes for peace

Are not hollowly preached

And calls for prompt action

Are soundly beseeched


Trust there's a time

When a whisper's too quiet

When we see talk is cheap

And there's none left to buy it


Have we've reached the age

When we rise to occasion

And injustice is met with

Some healthy hell-raisin'?


Perhaps we shall see

With this new generation

An optimist's future

But a stern declaration


Beware falling back

To mistakes long-in-tooth

A new sheriff's in town

And its first name is Truth


When sincerely it's asked

Who will answer that call

And a world full of promise

Is made one and for all
