What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us
-Ralph Waldo Emerson


It is older than dirt
It has inspired all, from beginning to end
It gave strength to Adam and Eve when
They had to leave

It gave will to Noah
When the rain came down
And the animals had to come

It has led leaders with tons of courage
David Solomon Alexander Lincoln
All knew it

It has grown ideas that feed a whole village
As though it’s the seed
And they are its soil

Martin Luther King Jr. was soil
As was Gandhi
Einstein too

It doesn’t just visit those in the past
It sees people today too, and we see it
in them
Malala Yousafzai Ebola fighters all its soil

It doesn’t discriminate between us
Religion sex race age – it’s blind to all
of this
It just sees your heart, if there’s love
and a want
A want to change things for the good

It will be your seed then

It is Hope
