[poetry] Sing A Little Song

Sing a little song of love and hope.
Where everyone stands there hand in calloused hand.
We laugh and we dance and we thank the powers that be.
Thank them for every little gift in our lives.

Sing a little song of a lifetime of peace.
That children will have both parents in their lives.
Where mothers and fathers won’t bury their children.
Where war is only a story to scare the next generation.

Sing a little song of a world without cancer.
Where we won’t lose our hair.
And we won’t be in pain.
Where the scars of the needles are no longer needed.

Sing a little song for the health of the world.
Where the trees can grow,
free and wild like they’re meant to be.
Where malnutrition doesn’t happen
And AIDS doesn’t exist.

To live,
To breathe,
To hope,
To dream.
Sing that song,
That glimmer of hope.
And show the world that love is still there.

Sing the song,
The beautiful song.

Sing a little song of equality.
Where women are equal
To the strength of men.
Where girls don’t need to feel ashamed
And boys don’t need to be tough anymore.

Sing a little song for me and for you.
If we don’t sing it now,
Then who’s gonna start?
It has to start somewhere…
…So why not with you?
