But keep what we now know in our mind
If we could use our power and our strength
To build each other, go to mighty lengths
Of educating ourselves and our people too
Produce young soldiers to place on the battle field of truth
To love and to cherish; to have and to hold
Instead of chasing after mass materialistic fool’s gold.
Imagine if we understood the true meaning of support
Through each trial and triumph and didn’t cut short
The balance we were bound to achieve if we only knew
How to love unconditionally and give each other our due
Without trying to control and needing to condemn
Without punishing each other for each other’s sins
Without dragging the baggage of others in
Without trying to move forward while focusing on where we’d been.
Imagine the life we’d have now and the goals we would have achieved
If we stood by each other and only believed
That there was more to it than just what we gave
That we could conquer much more if our love had been brave.
We could have moved the mountains that we instead chose to climb
Could have provided the sight instead of ourselves being blind
Could have uplifted and empowered the spiritually poor
But instead we imagined that elsewhere was more.
