Soaring, do his eyes pierce the clouds,
to see the injustice of the city?
the poverty of the country?
a poor child crying for milk,
the worker cheated of his wages,
or a young mother beaten?
The eagle does see it all,
like an angel, calling,
the lightning, cracking open,
on his wings bringing,
a new day where people love,
where we fight despair, with a handshake,
where healthcare is for everyone,
and where prejudice is erased.
Help us to see like an eagle,
and give us the courage,
to fight bravely,
with everything we’ve got.
We need eyes that pierce the clouds,
to see, and to have the heart,
of courageous compassion.
Blessings to everyone and peace!
“If you love nature, you will love people.”
