A Song Of Life For Today

What Are We?

We are not our thoughts.

We are not our desires.
We strive to become our hopes,

To know what we are not.

Our body is like a rose tree,
Which puts out many-petalled flowers.
Dancing in the wind for a while

Like someone who is free.

We are like the grass of springtime.
Our hearts grow green again,
To cover the cart tracks and footprints,
Of endless winters and sunless mind.

Virtual water – what we do not see. 

It takes 37 litres of water to produce a cup of coffee.

During the short time I needed to attach this link, the Iraq and Afghanistan wars cost more than what an average American family earns in a year. $907.3 billion could pay for comprehensive health care for all Americans for 1 year and half a lifetime for Africa.

Love is but a song to sing
Fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

My generation said it well, but some where we lost the message.

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now!
