It began as a wish,
A longing that came subtly from within.
Dreams often lead the way,
Sparked by jewels in a night sky underlit by a simple camp fire,
A billion times over and more this scene was replayed.
In the hearts of most of the world a vision occured,
One of peace and plenty for all,
Hearts able to withstand Love because Fear had fallen.
It was gifted and hinted and spoken in certain ancient texts,
Rising through the dust of ages,
The HOW of it questioned and reasoned countless times.
We wander the trails of this dream,
Tripping over stones at the edge of the path,
Walking behind guides not always reliable.
This un-discovered country lies before us,
Awaiting us to find enough starlight or moonlight,
Perhaps soon we will walk into the sunshine,
A place where we no longer need fear stepping into flames.
