If The Sun Rises

If the moon shall ask us for the sun
From where shall we get it
Can darkness and light meet
Or does one begin and the other end

If our dreams are full of hope
Will we out live our despair
Are our hopes and despair mutually exclusive
Or does one come while the other is here

If our brother hungers for freedom
Will we assist him
Will our help encourage his hope
Or will our neglect continue his despair

If we put down our stones
Will they be ready for peace
Are the stones and negotiations independent solutions
Or is one dependent on the other

If our leaders can no longer lead
Will they yield to the more able
Will the greater good prevail
Or will personal glory be the death of us all

If the sun rises in the morning
Will we be ready for the light
Will we rejoice together in our victory
Or will the sudden brightness blind us all
