The World Wide Open

This is the place
Where sadness can go
In quiet desperation
Released into the world wide open

This is the place
Where hate can take form
Anger meets frustration
Released into the world wide open

This is the place
Where fear can roam
Dividing a great nation
Released into the world wide open

This is the place
Where courage can break through
An overnight sensation
Released into the world wide open

This is the place
Where hope can spread
With a little imagination
Released into the world wide open

This is the place
Where peace can run free
It's ours for creation
Released into the world wide open

  10. Thank you for the wonderful comments. I was sitting in bed Sunday morning and the thought came to me about how we choose what we get from the web AND what we put out there. It was the first time in a long time that I leaped out of bed excited to write.

  11. This is so pretty. They need to be music lyrics, I think!
