Harmony is a land far, far away
Where people speak the language of love,
Where greed and envy are forgotten,
Where enemies agree to disagree,
Where the desire for supremacy melts away,
Where hands are held in empathy,
Fingers are entwined in solidarity.
This Heaven on Earth is reachable through
Braving the jungle of self-acceptance
Crossing the chasm of enlightenment
Conquering the pinnacles of tolerance
Absorbing the power of mindfulness.
The path is mired with gems,
That fill our hearts with dignity
And that teach us to say
"I am no better than you.
Come, my love, let us move this last boulder, together."
