Towards a Capitol of the World

     The differences betwen us 
are less than is commonly imagined
   We all need food, family, and love
     Meeting people from differnet cultures 
   has emphasized this to me 
The true capitol of the world 
   is in the depths of the heart 
Dancers on an earthly stage 
We gyrate to weather, politics, and culture 
In the end we share more than we don't share 
By letting our eyes and souls meet 
we can find common ground 
War is something that can be overcome
We should build bridges, not bombs
Teach love, not war 
Let the old and the young join hands 
Feel the earth beneath our feet 
Realize that in the end 
We are all stewards of this blue orb

    Well I have no arguments with these lines of poetry, Matthew; I see that Debbie raises some worthy observations.."the only way forward is an impartial education "however the forces that rule have a lot of indirect input.. and pester power I suppose is the best way I can put it.

    Ahhh if this were only true ;) man..wars..war is just one way man has found to redistrbute wealth and to hold power..I'm afraid war will never the Bible even the angels war [not that I take this as literally as some] there are only so many ways for man to die..war is just 1. Light & Love [line 3 different]
