Dreaming Towards Restoration

To be restored to laughter, love and joy; this is our dream.

Like watercourses in the desert, flowing in full stream.

We’ve sowed our oats, both wild and tame, and broadly scattered seed.

We yearn for harvest, coming home in wagons full of sheaves.

—–

For other people, God, it seems that you once did great things.

We look around ourselves and question what the future brings. 

Might it be said in this, our nation, that the time has come

For sanity, civility, respect for everyone.
