--Portage, IN

 

If you look into the eyes of an angel,

what is it you will see?

You will see a universe that spans

from sea to deepest sea.

If you look into the eyes of a child,

what is it you will see?

You will see the heart of an innocent,

one that you should never leave.

If you look into the eyes of animal,

what is it you will see?

You will see the freedom of a species,

running wild and running free.

Those eyes are the windows to the souls,

with beating hearts beneath their chests.

We are creatures of this planet,

and we stand high above the rest.

Intellect and passion,

we human beings possess.

We need to show compassion,

so we can pass this vital test.

Our world has turned into turmoil

right before our eyes.

The destruction and the killings

have made every statue cry.

If you look into your own eyes,

in that mirror you stand before,

can you live with yourself tomorrow,

knowing what that flag stands for?
