A Prayer For Change - Poem by Linda Ori

As children of the universe
Our destination earth,
We ride upon the solar winds
Until the hour of birth
When scattered, weary travlers
Who've journeyed from afar
Begin their incarnation
On this cold and dying star;

What used to be so beautiful,
So vibrant green and blue
An oasis for the many
Has been wasted by the few,
What purpose in this torture
Of the motherhood of man?
What evil child will desecrate
His home because he can?

We've overstayed our welcome
It's time for us to leave
And after our destruction
Will no man be left to grieve?
Sweet children of the universe
With hearts so pure and free
Release this star from bondage
With love's celestial key!

Return these souls to heaven
Wrap this earth in slumber deep,
Awaken us with dreaming,
Let your love inside us creep
Then as buds upon the branches
Of Life's tree on some spring morn'
We shall blossom into beauty
And this earth shall be reborn.

    Linda, what can I say that hasn't been said before me. Such a gentle, but loving poem. Once started reading it I couldn't stop, you drew me in with beautiful words and wonderful message. I loved this. Thanks for sharing it. The only sad thing I took so long to discover it.

    Such a gentle, loving and caring philosophy underlies this lovely work. Linda you're still a Hippy at heart, and the dark world hasn't faded those ideals one jot. Takes me back to Wooden Ships and After The Goldrush, and beyond into the sixties, and some more recent Janis Ian - 'Guess You had to Be There'. And Rene Dubos's Only One Earth, Rachel Carson - Silent Spring, etc. Beautiful sentiments. You would be there when it all started to fall apart too: the Kent State killings etc. But the promise of the best of it lives on in these words. Lovely. Thank you. xx jim (Report) Reply
