"There can be no peace without social justice."
Under corporate rule,
only the rich are well fed,
for corporations have no conscience
and only one motivation: profit.
When anger rules the streets,
hearts are broken and hopelessness is born
as the same old cycle
follows its same old futile path.
Time for one million Gandhi-jis to arise.
Time for the trees to preach interconnectedness.
Time for the refugee's bowl to be filled.
Time for the lion to lie down with the lamb.
Time for humanity to raise its vision
from survival to transcendence.
Time for the meek to veer off the path of submission
and begin to speak in holy tongues.
