“There's nothing fundamentally wrong with people. Given a story to enact that puts them in accord with the world, they will live in accord with the world. But given a story to enact that puts them at odds with the world, as yours does, they will live at odds with the world. Given a story to enact in which they are the lords of the world, they will ACT like lords of the world. And, given a story to enact in which the world is a foe to be conquered, they will conquer it like a foe, and one day, inevitably, their foe will lie bleeding to death at their feet, as the world is now.”


I want to be a vibrant valley,
Rolling hills for miles to see.
Let the vast blue ocean,
Take me up, down, swallow me.

I want to be a growing redwood,
Reaching up into the sky.
I am the rain that's pouring down,
Raise your fingers; feel me cry.

I want to be the sun that shines,
Gleaming rays of life upon.
I want to be the creeping darkness,
And the beautiful colors of approaching dawn.

I want to be the whistling wind,
Caressing natures beautiful ways.
I want to be,

All of tomorrows ; and all of today's.
