My Dream Homeland

Tell the sailors 
that the distant sea 
is cold at night
and that the island 
is for those eyes 
of love and light.

Upward bring your hearts 
and of Eden never lose sight
Lest the roads of Earth 
take you where the sun 
is not bright.

Lost is innocence, 
cold is the world, 
mixed is wrong with right
Crossed are the frontiers, 
tossed are the minds 
without flight.

this is not the place 
to remember the past 
of a knight
Nor is it of wisdom 
to forget the black 
memory of the white
Look beyond the dark, 
open a window of hope 
and fight.
