what is up is down
what is wrong is right

if the sky is blue
it will likely rain

even a warm wind
will feel bitter cold

when lies twist to truth
and facts are forgotten

hold your children close
find your soul ground

with strength of love
standing firm against

a fast-rising tide
of the dark shadow

nearly upon us

love transforms hate
love transforms the world

deepen into your soul ground
where the divine seed grows

into new eyes that notice
the divine in everyone and everything
