Image for the poem Cornerstone


Itís not the color of our skin
But the integrity that lies within
Good and evil are always at war
Is it our responsibility to even the score

Love, faith and forgiveness is all we need
Is the stone in your hand worth more than those that bleed
We all walk alone in a day of our own judgment
Unknowingly itís to late go back and make any adjustment

So itís a choice we all have to make
To judge those and their mistakes
To find strength in the Kingís message from the mountain and hill
To find the power to burn, loot and kill

Have we forgotten, is it still just a Dream
Are we liviní a nightmare with an evil gleam
The grass is never greener on the other side of the fence
Itís just a hurdle at our own expense

Maybe if we all drop our stone and steel from our hands
Listen to our hearts without demands
Love one another with blessings, as promised to you
Integrity is the cornerstone of a life anew
