Hearts on Fire

Hearts on Fire

Throughout the World
The Cry of Freedom is heard

The Smoldering Fire now’s
a brilliant Light that may
ignite the darkness with truth
it burns and as humanity prays

Hearts on Fire Now cry out to be heard
Too long the suffering has been ignored
Many questions on the way
The world is changing everyday

Old ways are slipping and falling away
The time has now come
it is here today

Hearts on Fire
Hoping for a say
Who can lead them without fear
When money controls the motives here

Always a price has to be paid
Or the chance that beckons will fade away

Pray for the ones who cry and ask Why
Pray for the lives
And the ones who have died

The world and it’s people are ready to try
To throw off all chains
They will not be denied

Hearts on fire, Beg to be free
God lead them and protect them
In all that they need

The Truth is Universal

One of the great gifts of traveling is experiencing teh commom bond of all living beings. There are threads that tie us all together.
I wrote this about that subject.

The Truth is Universal

As I journey on the Road of Life
A Whole new World to See,
Surrounded by new places
And so many different ways to be,

As I look into the Hearts and the Eyes I do Believe,
That there are Truths Universal
That are the Same in you and me.

Not the Same languages
Or the same ways to make money,
Not the same food to eat
Or similar culture to be.

Yet there is a Similar Spirit
There is the Same love that’s there.
There is the same deep caring
In what we’re all doing here.
There are things that are universal
And they shall always be.
There is the same Light that’s in the Eyes
Of every human being.
There is a Cry to be heard
When there world a falls apart.
There is a common thread
That lives in each and every heart.
We may not speak the same language
We may not live the same way.
Yet there’s a common Brotherhood
That ties us together every day.
Although are ways are different
Some truth will always ring true.
Look for that deep oneness
That’s in the love in me and you.
Look for the light in every soul
That’s seeking to be free.
There is a common brotherhood
Alive in you and me.
