Bigger Than


Bigger than a sea of questions,
My soul wants to know what happens
When we let go of the weapons
Put into our hands by demons.
Do we find a way of living
On the earth in tune with nature?
Do we learn the art of giving
While we still have time to squander?
All our choices are forgiven
By a kindness that is wiser
Than the wisest ones among us.
We must not surrender freely
What it is that makes us human,
Able to sing songs of beauty.
