Hope Against Humanity

Take us not through the deserts of sorrow

or the oceans of remorse

Let us not be swallowed by the hurricanes of greed

or drowned in the pride and the privilege 

of the apathetic

and those who choose to remain ignorant 

on the conflicts of our only planet

Our only home

Let us never forget the disasters caused by this greed

In trading lives for wealth

In trading empathy for social status

In trading love for power

Walk us not through the ages of destruction

but through the ages of rehabilitation

for our environment

and our community
