The Tide of Change

 

By D W Phoenix

 

The winds of change

Are blowing through my mind

Now I can see so clearly

Where once I was so blind

 

The seeds of change

Now planted in the ground

The green shoots of seedlings

Springing up around

 

The tide of change

Sweeping across the land

Changing all before it

Can’t be stopped or banned

 

The winds of change are blowing through

Valleys of oppression and despair

The tide of change is washing away

Barricades built against those who dare

For this is no revolution

When change is in the air

Just the flow of evolution

Bringing hope and not despair

 

The fields of dreams

Are swaying in the breeze

Where thoughts and young ideas

Grow like budding leaves

 

The people’s hopes

Nurtured beneath the sun

Till they grow tall and proud

Now their time has come

 

And peace will come

Fall like rain from a cloud

The revenge that you seek

Is wrapped in its shroud

 

The winds of change are blowing through

Valleys of oppression and despair

The tide of change is washing away

Barricades built against those who dare

For this is no revolution

When change is in the air

Just the flow of evolution

Bringing hope and not despair

 

Doves will descend

Bringing love on their wing

And people will rejoice

The good change can bring

 

Compassion flows

Like rivers down a hill

Forgiveness is a fire

To melt any chill

 

Deeds people do

The value of their worth

For we are the harvest

The fruits of the earth

 

The winds of change are blowing through

Valleys of oppression and despair

The tide of change is washing away

Barricades built against those who dare

For this is no revolution

When change is in the air

Just the flow of evolution

Bringing hope and not despair
