Our World Turns

I wish to preach
I wish to tell
all that we do wrong -

I wish to point
a future course
to end our waste
our childishness -

1 have a vision -
I see how things should

I wish to stop
our cruelty, find
our humanity, reach
the divine, the

dividing line that takes us
into adulthood all
unprepared -

let a new century
find the song
that will
release us from our dream
help us belong -

we do not live alone
help us to see
we do not rule

we do not live here
