Neither good nor bad, neither true nor false,
Our lives refuse to offer simple options.
With all our knowledge and all our effort,
Still we struggle to find acceptable
Routes that lead to the future we desire.
Can’t we find a source of motivation
“Clean” enough to fuel this nation’s will
And not pollute relationships amidst
Our own divergent population? Surely
So many viewpoints, each with glowing dreams
And new ideas to draw upon, can fuel
Our corporate good with all the power needed.
Engines stalled by ravaged hopes need not
Remain unused, but drive us on to greatness.
Synergy’s the key—but will we keep on
Searching till we find that proper blend of
Hope and harmony that breeds respect?
On that discovery our future hangs.
