May Be Far

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,
Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment

May Be Far
~~

To see the world of others
As the have seen themselves
Whether in a past or future
Across the ocean in other lands
Across the sea of vasty space
Greeted by an unknown people
A tribe that we must meet
Equals, though language bars us
From immediate comprehension
Until it may be far too late
Will we know what history
Has transpired, what their
Art, music, architecture,
Performance, writing, faith
Tell us, truly, who they are
Will we realize our methods,
Perceptions, values, must
Skew through our aesthetic
Belief and may be totally wrong
For all the people there
Us as well, damaging both
Or lead to genocide, annihilation
Of them or us and will it matter
In the end
I guess, but only to the survivors
~~~~~

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,
Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
