Rejuvenation

Fling the doors open 
And let out the stagnant air 
Open the board up windows 
It’s time to breath fresh air.

Sweep out the dirty corners 
And prepare for a powerful rejuvenation
Gather the dust in a bundle, 
Empty it in the Pacific Ocean
Then dip four times in the Atlantic Ocean.

Take a stroll along the corridors
Look your enemies in their eyes and
Greet them with a victory smile
Salute them with your mystical love 
And set ablaze their self-inflected flame

There is no doubt about this
You will go down as one of the bravest 
Solomon the wisest you the greatest
And victorious one

Sound it on the mountain top
Across the rippling desserts
Walk through the market places
The inner-cities, burnt out villages
Busy streets and crowded towns

Visit the little old lady in the tattered house
Located on the deserted side of town 
Shower her with hopeful words 
Your presence alone will embrace 
And nurture her weary soul

Make your way to the orphanage,
Wounded warriors
and the struggling ones
A simple touch with your powerful hands
Will answer the prayer of the weeping ones.

Go to the schools and colleges 
With words of comfort and love
Stop over places where you are not welcome 
And radiate them with persuasive sentiments.
All some people need is a  can of beer,
a cup of hot chocolate or good cheers .

Disperse the spirit of hope,
Perseverance and good expectation
And when night comes
Walk in the streets and sing 
Sing with timbrels and cheerful songs
You are an inspirational icon for everyone.

Your rhetoric’s are strong, use it to move along.
Use what works  best for you
Negotiations or forgiveness
And climb straight to the mountain top
With a hammer, a sledge or a cable car
Ropes and boots or just the magical you

Silence the poisonous networks
Give them something to talk about
Lift up your injured wings and start to sing
Join with the throng of angels in the grand jubilee
You are strong and ready to fly again.
Tarry no longer because you have won

Raise your banner 
And wave it high in the sky 
You have just defeated your enemies 
With compelling love
And your gigantic wings.

    this is a magnificent message. I sometimes have "types" of poets I identify with soup. there are the funny ones, the mystical ones, the nature lovers, etc. you seem to be the "humanitarian" poet with great wisdom to offer!
