Listen Up! (Dedicated To Everyone)

​Listen Up!

None of us

Are perfect 

We know this

None of us

Are able

To please

Everyone 

All the time

We know this!

But for some reason

That doesn’t 

Stop us

From pushing

And shoving 

Each other 

Into very 

Limited

States of Being

States of existence 

We’re all

Capable of

Cultivating 

Tremendous amounts 

Of

Love

And Compassion 

Yet too often

We

Choose

To cultivate 

Hate

Fear

And Prejudice 

So what if 

Someone 

Doesn’t believe 

In the same

Stuff

That you believe in!

So what if

Another immigrant 

Wants to cross the border

In order to

Create a

Better life

For himself 

And his family 

So what if

Mr. So and So

Wants to

Become 

Mrs. So and So

Why does it matter to you?

Does it really 

Throw off

Your

Day to day

Routine?

We all have

Our own

Paths

To follow 

Our own 

Lives

To Live

It’s our differences

That make us

Such a unique 

And diverse 

Civilization 

We can’t all

Be the same

We can’t all 

Be the same

It’s not

Gonna’ happen 

No matter 

How many 

Wars we

Wage

Or

Lives

We take

It’s not gonna’

Happen 

Perhaps what we need

Is a Wake Up call

Scratch that —

Seven Billion 

Wake up calls

Or

However many

It takes

For us 

To realize 

We all Occupy 

The same 

Planet

Within

The same

Solar system 

Within 

The same

Galaxy 

Within 

The same

Awesome 

Universe 

I know that what

I’m saying 

Has been said

Before 

But it still needs

To Be Said

It MUST

Be Said

It MUST

Be Absorbed 

Absorbed and

Digested 

Over

And

Over

And

Over

And

Over 

I refuse

Refuse

To believe that 

We Human Beings

Are “Doomed”

Sure

Destruction 

Is in our nature

But so is

Creation

And creation

Is

Much more

Powerful 

And

All encompassing

So, it only makes sense

To focus on

Creating 

A more

Positive 

And

Enlightened 

Reality

There’s nothing holding

Us back

We are the heroes 

Depicted

In all

Those movies

We are the forgers 

Of our own

Destiny

We are the

Saviors

We’ve been

Waiting for

We

Are

It

We

Are

One

We

Are

One

WE ARE ONE
