One Gift

One gift to leave my friends
One song to sing for the silent and oppressed
One arrow is all I have
One candle to lighten the darkness
Let it be hope.

You love the earth
You feel the pain of her children
It is not you who suffer
So much as it is all humanity
And it touches you deeply
To the inner core of your being
And you feel the despair
And the dark hopelessness
The loss of power
The meaninglessness of all your works.

You are told that you belong to darkness
Perhaps it is so, but you are walking towards the light
You may know it not
But your feet are already on the path
And your heart that feels the pain of all
Is opening to the infinite
You are the seed of all the new creation, my friend
And I wish you well.
