Lets Heal This World of Ours

Lets heal this world of ours

beating within this heart of mine
is a rhythm deep and true
it accompanies a melody from within
which i'd like to share with you
For its coming to me every night
and whispers to me every day
So if you don't mind me sharing
hear now what i'm going to say

everyone is worthy of rights;
everyone: worthy of love
no one should ever feel left out
or should they be made fun of
but seems we have our guidelines
that we allow society to make
and tend to adopt as very own
stereotypes from which we partake

So we create our little groupees
and we have our little cliques
"And if don't change to become like us
you can just stay there in the sticks"
"We are the priveleged people"
so many folks like to say.
Yet in their narrow mindedness
have hurt people along the way

i cannot understand this all
how so many "think" they're right
and claim to know whats good for all
by saying they bear the light
shutting the doors on so many
because they live a different way
i just cannot accept these ways
and look to a better day

When people accept each other
whether they are black or white
When it wont matter who you marry
to be found worthy in "gods sight"
When people will put aside their words
and see each other with love
when forms you fill out to vote wont ask
how you worship god above.

We are a people who need the light
that will enable us to see
That every person is worthy of love
no matter who they may be.
We all have our prejudices
which have caused so many scars
Today let us resolve to drop them all
and start healing this world of ours
