To know love once again

If I could channel all that I feel,
Into the strength to pull suffering from its root,
Shaking the earth, but not breaking it,
So that the spirit in each person became alert,
And for a moment the world stood still,
Just long enough for a miracle to occur,
A shower of tears,
From fourteen billion eyes,
Mourning three thousand years of sorrow,
Releasing the blinding lenses of distorted perception,
So that we could see ourselves in the eyes of every stranger,
And feel the earth course through our veins,
So that we could know love once again,
I would.
