the world in me

My world is the world within me
where all dwell in peace and love.
Where the nightingale's song of desire
wafts through our dreams,
where we are awakened to live those dreams
by the birds of the morning,
where I behold
fields of rich harvest,
green growing forests,
the deer and rabbit treading in safety,
and where cool streams caress our toes.
Here, we know we are citizens
of untold universes,
and we venture forth into them
seeking and experiencing
like the heroes we are.
I am the singer and the song
of this vision,
I am the seeker and the sought,
I am the change I want to see,
I am the world inside of me.
