I want a better world, so I climb this mountain alone.

I want a better world.

But this world is so wicked.

Few can stand by me with the same wish.

They break.

They run.

They hide.

I want a better world!

I climb this mountain alone!

They say if I get to the top I can be heard.

But those who are in fear, bring me down.

And yet, I keep climbing.

Even if I hvae to climb alone.

I want a better world.

I do not feel this is home.

I want a better world.

Where labels don’t lead to murder, genocide, or the surgical destruction of lives.

So much hate among humans.

So much Fear.

So much self-righteous judgement

It sickens me, and yet I walk on.

Climbing this mountain alone.

I want a better world.

This poem dedicated to U2’s – Walk On.

 

Walk On:

And love
Is not the easy thing
The only baggage
That you can bring
And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can’t leave behind

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it’s a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on
Walk on
What you got, they can’t steal it
No they can’t even feel it

Walk on
Walk on
Stay safe tonight

You’re packing a suitcase for a place
None of us has been
A place that has to be believed
To be seen

You could have flown away
A singing bird
In an open cage
Who will only fly
Only fly for freedom

Walk on
Walk on
What you got
You can’t deny it
Can’t sell it or buy it

Walk on
Walk on
You stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
You can only take so much

Walk on
Walk on

Home
Hard to know what it is
If you never had one

Home
I can’t say where it is
But I know I’m going

Home
That’s where the hurt is

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on

Leave it behind
You’ve got to leave it behind

All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break

All that you measure
All that you feel
All this you can leave behind

All that you reason
It’s only time
And I’ll never fill up all my mind

All that you sense
All that you scheme
All you dress up
And all that you see

All you create
All that you wreck
All that you hate
