  • Go Forth

    I feel the world.
    I feel the oceans and the seas.
    I feel the sunset and the sunrise.
    I feel the moon and the stars.
    I feel the cities and the valleys.
    I feel the horizon and the underground.
    I feel the world.

    There is a place out there
    Some people have heard of,
    Some not, but there is still a place
    This point in time consists of
    Everything and nothing,
    The world and the hole,
    And the light and the dark

    Outside of this land lies
    Something extraordinary:
    People, in the endless universe,
    People full of hope
    Full of pride and prosperity
    There lies a world like ours
    Gaze out before you

    See this world for what it is
    I beg of you, notice,
    Hear, smell, see, feel
    This isn’t our world
    But it could be soon
    See the skyscrapers before you?
    The sweet smell in the air?

    I see the new world
    Through this looking glass
    Called faith, so can you see it?
    Can you imagine the world?
    The world this is to become?
    A hundred ships lost at sea
    Is like the minds of those without faith

    Look in front of you
    As you have done so many
    Many times before
    You see what is now, what is,
    But not what could be
    And that is where you fail
    Where most fail

    Look, instead now, to a child
    Full of faith, and hope alike
    Feel the surge of love
    That comes from within and realize
    Realize that which you cannot see
    That which you cannot bet
    That which you cannot know

    For if you gaze into the future
    The ever changing will of God
    The ever changing world you seek
    You can only bet on one thing,
    That it shall forever be just that
    Ever changing, and for that
    You cannot see

    If you cannot dream and hope
    And love and wish
    If you cannot do things
    Like this, then you will not last
    Because how do you think
    That this small world came to be?
    Perhaps from the smaller world before it?

    Prosper in the faith of a child
    Believe in love that’s unconditional
    Trust that the light will always shine
    Faith is just the beginning, child,
    Love is greater still
    For if you have these things, as so few do,
    You shall make the world that lies ahead

    From infinite journeys
    And infinite faith lies truth
    And from this is there more still
    Dear child, feelings are the key
    Can you feel the ever present secret?
    To happiness and joy alike?
    The key is simply to believe

    You say, this is too easy, too hard
    Or better yet, too odd
    But I ask who is truly happy?
    The ones who believe that there is more
    Or the ones who don’t?
    The ones who hope or not?
    I say the ones who do

    Why does a soldier fight in battle?
    If not for hope of a better world?
    Why does a mother sacrifice herself?
    If not for hope of a sweeter tomorrow?
    Aye, the journey of our lives is bitter
    Full of hate and lies and death
    So what is wrong with believing in more?

    You say, because it is false,
    Well then you have no hope, soldier,
    You say, you are smarter,
    But is that so?
    You think that you’ll create
    A better tomorrow
    Much better than the believers will

    But, I ask, how can that be?
    When you don’t believe in the tomorrow
    After that? So I ask of you
    Who makes a better tomorrow
    The ones who build for eternity
    Or the ones who build for today
    For what happens if we do last?

    You say the chances are little
    You say the results are sure
    But if there is even a smidge of wrong,
    You’ll die when tomorrow’s tomorrow
    Come knocking on our door
    Oh the beliefs of a non believer
    Themselves, the royalty

    And how, I ask, did you get
    To that point?
    Without dreaming and hoping
    For the future?
    So perhaps, I conclude,
    Everyone is a believer and
    Therefore your beliefs are untrue

    So unfortunate a person so
    Belittling beliefs can yet
    Have crushed ones themselves
    So, belief, hope, dreams, wishes
    They’ll stay with us forever more
    It is what makes living a joy
    And dying simply a new beginning

    So famous are words better than these
    But perhaps these words shall ring true
    The world is a tough place
    And we need each other to face it
    We need others too
    I say this with utmost respect,
    For I know you are a believer

    I say, unto you, please
    Remember what I say here to you
    People are lost and go mad
    From loneliness they think they have
    When there are people there
    Imagine how much worse it would be
    If we all truly stood in our own little worlds

    Give a smile, a wave and pass it on
    Brighten the world, if just for a moment
    For the world shall stand a little straighter
    And the people inside will be a little happier
    So go forth and spread it like oxygen
    So go forth and bring a little faith
    A little hope that’s been long forgotten
