One Hand Can Light The World

Broken bottles,

Now broken glass sings

A sad song of your past

To you.

Here in a darkened room

A little boy fighting,

Hurt and gloom,

Is left to dream alone.

As his soul cries

The world says its hands are tied.

They don’t realize

One hand can light the world.

One hand can light the darkened faces.

And help the world see other places

That still need our light.

Your conscience bleeds

As you watch them suffer.

You cradle yourself like a mother now.

Do you realize

How one hand can light the world?

One hand’s touch

Watch time as the flame fills the mind,

And the dream begins to be born.

In the heart

Burns a seed

To heal the wounds

Left here to bleed

One hand can light the world!
