Impossible

How can we create a balance of humanity?
Impossible
With equal economy and equal abilities?
Impossible
How can we create each of us to be a peaceful teacher?
Impossible
How can we teach each child to preserve this garden earth?
Impossible
How can we limit each to the limit of Eden?
Impossible
WITH A PRIME DIRECTIVE OF EXIST?
Impossible
Within the limits of desist?
Impossible
Given by birth each a different brain
Impossible
Even of physical explain.
Impossible
Creation does not work this way
Creation does not dolt on humanity
We have gone beyond the world of simple
The Ten Commandments was not feasible
Five thousand years of try could not make it work.
It is a dilemma beyond our ken
Impossible
And thought I see naught but an end
Not impossible
I do all in my power to make it possible.

One seed can start a garden
One drop can start a sea
One doubt can start a hating
One dream can set us free

One man can make a difference ...
teach the children, pass on the wisdom
thank you for the things you share...
we learn from your vision....
so you do make a difference.

Well I looked to the sky for my anthem
The words and the music came through
But words and music can never touch
The beauty that I've seen in you

JM, There is a place within the stars
    I'm sure it's there but is not ours.

Never stop wishing on those stars Sy-babe  



Though my soul may sit in darkness,
It will arise in perfect light.
For I have loved the stars much too fondly
To be fearful of the night".

Well I looked to the sky for my anthem
The words and the music came through
But words and music can never touch
The beauty that I've seen in you

Not very long ago....we still thought the world was flat. We are all still babes of the knowledge and learning of how to make all things possible. This is just one more horrible growing pain Sy. We must continue to try. Peace and Love.

Sincerely,
Regina

Rwood,
I do not understand it all
But only hear a distant call.
Thank you.

I thank you Kit and your gentle wit.

Cpat Hair,
We all should, thank you.
