They say that "a picture is worth a thousand words"

And that may be true at many times,

But simple words, like, "I have a dream",

Can mean a thousand things to a thousand minds.


In the realm of science, questions are many,

And as more are answered then more are found.

The same can't be said for the world's religions

'cause Faith isn't necessarily an answer hound.


Then there is love in all its forms,

Selfless, Selfish, and possessive to a fault.

Some hearts are open and easily broken

And others are hard as a banker's vault.


People are people the world over

And what suites them may not suite you.

Some say Paw-taw-toe and some say Potato,

And some see green when others see blue.


Let the Paw-taw-toes do and the Potatoes do.

And who should care what color you see?

Let's get a grip, and set right this ship,

Then sail it for a while on a selfless sea;

Where everyone is always free.
