Close your eyes and tell me what do you see?
Is reality harsher than your vision of peace?
When I open my eyes I see reality and greed,
A world where men choose power and let their souls bleed,
I see the murder of Hamza Al Khateeb,
I witness his death though it’s hard to perceive,
When I close my eyes I wish that you could see,
The vision in my mind that causes my heart to bleed,
I close my eyes & I see a vision peace,
A vision you could truly say was hard to believe,
I see fallen angels and faces I miss,
Reality is cruel so I see what I wish.
The world in a state where division is rare,
Where if my brother was to bleed every soul would care,
If another needed time everybody would share,
Where through the words of a man his soul would be bare.
Lies, greed, intolerance and hate,
Would be a vision of the past long locked away,
Pain would not exist nor would terror be disguised,
Fear would be a myth no longer seen in your eyes.
When I breathe my last breath and I close my eyes,
Take my vision from this page and witness it through your life.
