If You Can



If you can believe…lets take flight
Overcome our boundaries
Forget what could have been better
And together explore the azure infinity

If you can trust…come hold my hand
Let’s take a walk along the forgotten pathways…
Leave behind our footprints in the age old dust
And together welcome the new dawn

If you can fight…lets snatch immortality
Be larger than life in this petty rat race
Survive like a lighthouse through the storm of time
And together force our demons to see defeat…

If you can love…come lets spread it
Bring a smile on those parched lips…
A healing touch to those in pain
And together carry forward the torch of humanity

Is it asking for too much…
From the only rational animal
If you can…please make it true
And together all of us lets say…we can.

I wonder if anyone has yet commented on your choice of images... subtley complimenting the dignity that flows through the syllables... beautiful its been quite some time that I've been treated to some 'refreshing' eloquence :)
Buena suerte, amigo. Y Feliz Año Nuevo!

The revolutionary-he indeed,has a sheer sense of the poetic mantra within him.He can conquer the heights of Eliot someday given the way he is progressing.

Hah. Hope is quite the motivator, until everything comes crashing down again.

You've captured the exaltation really well.
