0147 I See a World [1997]

I saw a world where life was free,
Where time was no matter.
Where death was accepted
And love was a daily thing.

I saw a world where animals ran
Without a care.
Free and beautiful,
Living without fear.

I saw a world where eternity ruled,
Where kindness lived,
And hatred did not exist
As it does now.

And I see a world,
Lost in the throes of greed.
Devoured by its own need,
For power over every living thing.

And I will see a world
Where all will be equal,
Plant, animal and human.
It won’t matter.
No one will be too powerful
And no one will hate or fear the other.
