There never was a time

When everything was fine.

We can never make it back

To find a thing we’ve always lacked.

We’ve never been at peace or kind.

Review our history, you’ll find

That who we are is who we’ve been

So why try to go back again?

Perhaps instead of yearning for

A chance to live the past once more,

We ought to turn our eyes ahead

For better things to come instead.

We ought to work on being kind

Until a better world we find.

We can’t be great a second time

With a past of war and hate and crime.

Our hist’ry’s far from full of light,

But future things might still be bright

If we would leave this path of hate

And learn to just communicate

With grace and kindness, mercy, too.

A better world begins with you.
