Look around what do you see?
Catch a glimpse of modern slavery.
Lying systems, in a rigged economy –
Justice is given to the anomaly.
Take a look closer what do you feel?
The plight of a human or a dollar bill?
No justice for people the systems kill
Orphans created at political will.
Do you run – into neighborhoods that fail?
And ask yourself – what must prevail?
Our justice leaves a broken trail
As innocence is beaten and placed in jail.
Do you run from addicted diseases in fear?
As you cling to possessions – look in the mirror.
I hope you see the image clear
Things are not always as they appear.
Go forward and find the sacred land
That place reserved for you to stand
If you’re afraid, take my hand
There’s nothing together we cannot withstand.
I’m scared – and I need you too
Hold me up and I’ll hold you
Together – think of all we may do.
As long as we have a heart that’s true.
A helping hand, a shattered gavel
Splinters removed in the lives we travel
It’s no small thing as we unravel.
All the pain within the ones we shackle.
You and I, we are the same
We were just dealt a different game.
Each given our moment in unwanted fame.
Diverse lessons deeply en-trained.
Could you fold on the cards of hate?
On life and love must we debate,
Or is being a judge – your only trait?
As you search for souls to humiliate.
In your reflection – I pray you’ll see
The spirit connection between you and me.
In the glass, I hope you’ll find
We are all reflections of one great mind.
The God, Spirit, or whatever word you use
We’re in this together and given a muse
A way to speak, a destiny to fulfill
Seeped inside our human will.
A pivotal moment after the recompense
The moment one steps beyond the fence
Life or death what will it hold
As we walk away, will we break the mold?
