OK, Enlightenment

By Carlos Cardona


Beyond words, beyond time,
You fly from Heaven and wait forty years,
Patient and sure of my love.

We met in war and prayed for victory,
That nations, races, religions and sexes,
Would embrace an inclusive truth,
And not the superior disdain we teach our children,
As we separate them with Religion.

Beyond words, beyond time,
Your eyes, your touch, your smile,
Sing to me from deep inside my cavern,
Are you all I want from life?
OK, Enlightenment.
