Into One World





Just a few steps from here to there
A little walk to the chain of defense
The iron wrinkle
The rusted snake
Lets step beyond the line
Into one world –
Mine and yours
With the others who belong

It’s enough dirt and gunpowder
It’s enough blood and sick power
It’s enough loss and caution
Enough lost bargains and foul traps
Lets step beyond the line
Into one world –
Mine and yours
With the others who belong

We’ll play together in your home
I’ll cook you a meal in my attic
Forget the past, lets stop the fights
Lets pray together, lets just smile
Lets step beyond the line
Into one world –
Mine and yours
With the others who belong

    1. It is! There is nothing imprinted on their minds and so, their creativity knows no bounds. :)
