When you picture the earth
In the sky like a moon
You know it’s more
Than just a rock
It’s an anthology of anthologies
Every life a story
Billions of histories
Unseen dreams
Dramas
Victories
Tragedies
And epic loneliness
Among strangers inhabiting this little globe
Is it too much to ask
That all the good and the bad
Continue a little longer?

 

As you try to picture
The earth in the sky
Turn to the person next to you
Remind them that God is love
And love is God
And love is the answer
And warn them of the lies
We have been told
By those with no love for the world
Who would want us to believe
That money is God
God is money
And those things are perfectly fine
Greenhouse gases and deforestation
Would never bring us harm
