If I were to mention John Locke or his ideas
would you change your actions
would you treat each other as equals
OR do i need to mention Jesus, Muhammed
OR Other religious leaders
What would it take for you to lower your standards
What would it take for you to love everyone
The homeless bum on your street,
The Pope or the president everyone
Not just a select few,
Not just who you choose
Can't you show truth to all?
Can't you manifest your true feelings into all your actions and to
Everyone you meet?
Everyone not in perfect harmony
But everyone open and honest
But not even heaven like or perfect
WHY can't we just look at each other as equals
WHY can't we accept everyone and their faults
That is the world that i want to live in
That is the world that i want to live in.
