if i wake up in the morning,

if the hungry bowls are filled,
and the homeless have a place to lay down.
if all people are treated equally,
regardless of color, religion, or beliefs.
if dignity be restored to the common man.
if men and women respect each other,
and the art of living is just that.
if forgiveness comes as easy as breathing,
and caring becomes the way…
then i will know this journey is over,
and will lay down in perfect peace.
if not….
i will wake up standing,
fighting, believing, singing….
i will be what life demands i be!
