Lack of clear vision
Leaders fiddle as earth burns
How foolish we are

A lack of conscience
Only fools deny science
What global warming

Break the defined boundaries

Defined by boundaries set by self
We suffer in silence having lost our ways,
Seek solace in teachings of gurus and leaders

Who are defined by their own boundaries.

We flounder, exchange stories with fellow travelers
Like lemmings, we trudge along to our destiny,
Mistaking as goals expectations set by others

Aspire to conquer great heights, hope of attaining solace.

Those who get to the top of the artificial goals
Blinded by the darkness at the top try climbing up again,
Others left behind burrows deep seeking a way out

Mortgaging our lives in search of elusive expectations.

Seeking happiness in trinkets of technology, a mad rush for speed
We fail to see the key within our own hearts.
Dancing to the tunes of puppeteers unseen

We have forgotten to stop and seek within.

The power to scale the wall, break down the boundaries
Lies with each one of us if we dare to seek.
Not to conform, not to rebel but be our own

Salvation lies in our hearts, if we dare to slow down.

Not to worry what we have not, not to demean what we have
Proud and content in our uniqueness, compassionate to others,
Breaking the artificial boundaries, armed with newfound vision
Find ourselves, happy, and light the lamp of a new dawn.

Within

Within our hearts there is a place hidden
Protected well from ourselves even
That’s the core pillar of who we really are
Sooner we find it, we shall know us better

Within ourselves the moment we are born
All is clear, pure and all is clean
Surroundings fill us with garbage and dirt
Upto us to again make it clean and bright

Within us have strength to forgive and forget
Finding our true self, we shall be brave
No need for any preachers and healers
Find ourselves and we can be leaders

Within our hearts we can find love again
Compassion for others, courage to befriend
Extend helping hands to the downtrodden
Welcome others as sisters and brethren

Within us we have the resolve for freedom
We have the aptitude and we have the wisdom
Deep inside all of us burns the same fire
Peace and prosperity for all is our desire

Within our core is truth and light
External world blinded our sight
Close the eyes and search deep inside
Let our true self be shining bright
